Parts of Connecticut Under Air Quality Alert

By Matt Ford

The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection issued an air quality alert on Tuesday for several parts of Connecticut, Eyewitness News reports.

The alert was issued for 2 p.m. through 10 p.m. and covers Fairfield, Middlesex, southern New Haven and southern New London counties.

Meteorologist Scot Haney said a flow of warm air will keep temperature high with chances of showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday, and that the heat will persist through this week. Temperatures may drop a bit on Wednesday and Thursday to mid-to-upper 80s, before rising again for a humid Friday.

This weekend, however, could be a tilting point. A cold front is expected to pass through southern New England, possibly bringing showers and autumn-like weather with it.
