Yeah...Rain Is Still Coming.

Steady rain and drizzle is overspreading the state tonight. Moderate to heavy rain is expected during the Friday morning commute. Rain on top of old snowpack and saturated ground will cause localized moderate to major flooding, mainly across the western areas. The Housatonic River will be especially vulnerable to flooding this time around. Flooding is not as much of a concern for the rest of the state with lower rainfall totals. The rain will taper off during Friday afternoon with a gradual drying trend throughout the weekend. Rainfall totals will range between ¾” in eastern Connecticut to 2” in far western Connecticut.
