Connecticut State Police are cautioning motorists to exercise extra caution during the evening commute as the region braces for the latest round of wild weather that is expected to hit the area on Tuesday.

A tornado watch was issued in parts of Connecticut on Tuesday, as whipping winds, heavy rain and potential flooding are expected in the area, with the heaviest rain expected between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for Fairfield County until 11 p.m.

In advance of the expected inclement weather, Connecticut State Police officials issued an alert to locals warning them to be safe if they have to get behind the wheel of a car.

“With the potential for strong winds, downpours and reduced visibility starting this afternoon, use extra caution when driving. Turn on windshield wipers and headlights, reduce speed, increase following distance and avoid collected water on travel lanes and shoulders.”
