When it rains, it pours!  After a 3”-5” rainfall deficit since March, Mother Nature is playing catch up.  Today some areas will pick up half a month’s worth of rain in just a few hours. Flash Flood Warnings, Watches and Advisories are posted for various Connecticut Counties. There is no point in getting into which alert your home is in because really everyone is in the same boat tonight. Bottom line, watch for flooding of poor drainage areas, low lying areas, small streams and creeks in any of tonight’s downpours. If your basement typically floods, keep an eye on it the next few days.

Off and on showers and downpours will continue all the way through at least Sunday morning.  The humidity will be moving out, getting replaced with a chilly air mass.  On Saturday and Sunday, temperatures will get stuck in the 50s! Monday looks like the best day of the long weekend with sunshine returning.

Tonight: Rain, heavy at times with an embedded thunderstorm. Low 60s
Tomorrow: Cloudy with scattered showers and downpours, cooler and turning gradually less humid. Chance for an isolated thunderstorm. High: 63-68
Saturday: Cloudy with off and on rain, cool! Breezy, chance for an isolated thunderstorm. High: 50-55
Sunday: Scattered showers, cool and mostly cloudy. Some drying in the afternoon with brightening possible. High: Mid 50s
