Forecast: Intense Wind And Rain Sunday Night


A High Wind Warning is in effect through 6am Monday for Long Island, Connecticut, and parts of the Hudson Valley. A southeast wind is very rare, but they have happened - during Irene for example when the Commonwealth experienced one of the worst power outages in history. "A soaking rain will impact the area through this evening, with 1"-3" of rain expected, but potentially over 4" in spots. It will be even more hard to judge the depth of water on a road at night than in the daytime.

It's yet another rain and wind storm here in CT!

A flash flood watch has been issued for all of New Hampshire due to the potential of heavy rain from Sunday night through Monday. If you're headed to the Patriots game, expect a couple of showers - but I'm not looking for much in the way of wind or heavy downpours.

The rain will taper off to scattered showers midday Monday, ending in the afternoon from south to north. Highs in the lower to middle 60s.

The high wind and steady rain could lead to some shoreline flooding.

Even inland CT will experience winds 25-50 miles per hour, which is strong enough to cause power outages due to trees still having leaves on them. "Strong wind will last past midnight until the pre-dawn hours Monday; rain will be steady just past midnight but become showery during the wee hours".

After a sunny Sunday with highs reaching 76, temperatures are expected to drop into the 20s overnight with snow possible. As the kids head out trick-or-treating, the weather should be fairly seasonable in the upper 40s and lower 50s with mainly clear skies.
