Tuesday forecast: Freezing rain, flood watch, high winds on the shoreline

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Freezing drizzle led to dozens of accidents across the state this morning. Most highways/side roads/driveways/sidewalks were ice rinks this morning.

Rain will fall heavily during the day today, with some breaks in the action expected by late afternoon. That said, it certainly won't be a nice day to be outside at any point today. Up to 3 inches of rain is certainly possible in spots.

A flood watch is in effect for the entire state. There is also a high wind watch and a coastal flood warning in effect for the shoreline. All of this activity is due to a powerful nor’easter passing through. Temperatures will top out around 40.

Moisture lingers into Wednesday in the form of a few rain and snow showers, with breezes continuing through midweek.

Thursday morning could have a few snow showers, and those may lead to a minor accumulation in spots.
