The National Weather Service is forecasting moderate to severe thunderstorms which may produce damaging winds, hail and even tornadoes for Thursday, July 26, in Connecticut.

The Weather Channel's Severe Weather Expert Dr. Greg Forbes stated that a derecho may occur during the morning hours from portions of New York State to central and southern New England.

"Derechoes are large clusters of thunderstorms that produce widespread wind damage, usually as a result of one or more curved lines of thunderstorms known as bow echoes," according to the Weather Channel's What Is A Derecho? page.
