FIRST WARNING

A sunset rainbow likely and a pleasant Wednesday ahead

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

A line of strong to severe storms developed in eastern New York and western Connecticut after midday Tuesday. These pushed in between 2 and 6 p.m. with torrential rain. 

Many areas received 1 to 2 inches with some communities in eastern Hampden County getting more.

Street flooding was the main concern, but eastern Hampden county received a severe storm that at one point left nearly 1,700 customers without power. 

There's not a major clean up due to wind, but there were lots of commuting issues due to the heavy rain coming down in a short period of time.

Temperatures were not all that hot Tuesday, with only a few locations pushing near 80. It was the dew point temperatures in the mid to upper 60s that made it very uncomfortable. 

This will all change overnight.

A cold front is pushing through will deliver more comfortable air Wednesday, but it doesn't last long with higher humidity returning Thursday with the chance for scattered showers.
