When It Rains, It Pours. Heavy Rain & Gusty Winds Friday!

Showers will develop tonight.  The highest elevations in northwest Connecticut could briefly see a few mangled snowflakes or sleet pellets. Rain will become heavy towards daybreak tomorrow, just in time for the morning rush! Minor flooding is possible in the typical poor drainage areas.  But wind isn’t the only obstacle tomorrow morning. The wind will howl out of the southwest at 20 to 30 mph and occasional gusts up to 50 mph. After a wet start to the day, drying will occur this afternoon with partial clearing.

Cold returns behind the storm Saturday and beyond with temperatures struggling through the 30s for most days next week.

A few lake effect snow showers are possible Saturday, especially in northwest Connecticut. Sunday and Monday look chilly and breezy but dry. Light snow could return Christmas morning.  Not enough to coat the ground but just enough to set the mood for the holiday!

By the way…Winter arrives tomorrow at 6:12 AM!
