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.
