Heavy rains, strong winds, Sunday into Monday

Heavy rains, strong winds, Sunday into Monday

Having said that, we're not expecting big problems here. The steadier rain will gradually move in by this evening with an increasing southeasterly wind.

Most of CT faced a flash flood watch, high wind warning and hazardous weather outlook Sunday afternoon, as rain continued to hammer the region Sunday.

Rain will continue into early Monday but a gusty wind will continue all day on the backside of the low. Winds of this strength can take down trees and subsequent power lines which means you should plan on power outages.

We're anticipating numerous power issues Sunday night into Monday with the greatest power threat along coastal areas of the state. River flooding is expected to be minor. Winds are expected to quickly increase overnight and peak during the early- to mid-morning hours Monday.

Today: Showers, areas of rain.

The high wind and steady rain could lead to some shoreline flooding. The deepening low and a departing high over the Canadian Maritimes will produce a funneling effect directed right at the ME coastline. Power outages could be scattered to widespread.

Where: All of CT with gusts over 60 miles per hour possible along coastal communities of southern New London and Middlesex counties. Some clearing late in the late, remaining quite windy. By tomorrow afternoon, temperatures should reach the lower and middle 50s.

But, she says, after the tricky weather, we're in for a treat. Between this afternoon and midnight, we are dry with increasing cloud cover. Lows in the upper 50s.

Thursday: Mostly cloudy, chance for a few showers.
