Cars drive through a portion of Route 83 in Manchester that was flooded by tropical storm Henri, August 22, 2021.

Heavy rain moved across Connecticut Monday afternoon.

The Hartford area was under a severe thunderstorm warning until 6:30 p.m. as the storm worked its way across Connecticut.

A tornado warning for Northeastern Litchfield County in northern Connecticut issued by the National Weather Service in Albany Monday afternoon expired shortly after 6 p.m.

Skies will clear later Monday night and humidity will drop.

On Tuesday, it will feel like spring with high temperatures in the low 70s with a mix of sun and clouds. Wednesday will be mostly sunny and breezy, with temperatures in the low 70s.
