Flood watches are up for the state again. A Flood Warning is in effect for the Housatonic River at Stevenson Dam, where minor flooding is already occurring from recent rainfall. The next storm on Thursday will stay south of Connecticut. Luckily, the heaviest rain and strongest winds will miss the state. So instead of 2”-4” of rain with gusts up to 50 mph, we’re expecting 1”-3” of rain with gusts up to 30 mph. While that’s a better scenario, we’re still under the gun for some flooding.
Showers will begin after the commute Thursday, with rain turning steadier and heavier in the afternoon and evening. Rain tapers to scattered showers during the commute Friday. The good news is that we dry out just in time for Father’s Day weekend, with mostly sunny skies and highs in the 70s and 80s. Then more rain is possible next week.
Tonight: Increasing clouds. Lows: 50s.
Tomorrow: Showers developing in the morning, becoming widespread in the afternoon. Rain will come down heavy at times. Chilly and breezy.
Friday: Morning rain tapering to scattered showers, with some clearing possible. Windy with gusts to 30+ mph.
Saturday: Mostly sunny, dry and pleasant. Upper 70s to near 80 degrees.
Sunday: Mostly sunny and milder. Clouds increasing late in the day. Highs in the low to mid 80s.
Monday: Milder and mostly cloudy with scattered showers.
