High pressure will move off-shore Sunday allowing clouds to roll in; but at least temperatures will moderate a bit as a southwest flow transports milder air across the northeast. A storm developing in the Gulf of Mexico will quickly move across the northeast with a band of moderate to heavy rain by Monday afternoon and evening. The rain could start out as a little icy mix in far northern Ct early Monday morning but will quickly change to rain as milder air works into the region. The rain could be heavy at times Monday afternoon and evening with upwards of an inch or more of rain by time the storm moves away. Much colder air returns to the area as the Arctic express is open for business through most of next week with daytime high temperatures in the 30’s to near 40, while lows will plunge into the teens and 20’s overnight through the early morning hours. Bundle-up, as it will feel like the middle of December instead of November.
