Nor-easter-like storm expected this weekend

Nor-easter-like storm expected this weekend”

Wind gusts with this storm are still a tough call. There are parts of the state that could see 4 inches or more.

Expect periods of rain, at times heavy, and increasing wind speeds through Monday morning, forecasters say. Increasing southeast wind 10 to 20 miles per hour, gusts up to 35 miles per hour. 1 to 3 inches of rain is likely.

Familiar pieces will be in play again.tropical moisture, digging trough, low-level jetstream and all will lead to a powerful event Sunday night and Monday morning.

A flash flood watch will also be in effect from Sunday afternoon to early Monday morning across southern CT, including Fairfield, New Haven, and Litchfield counties. We could also see some downed tree branches and potential power outages as we get into Monday and those will pick up further.

As the area of low pressure moves into northern New England Monday afternoon, our wind direction changes but will stay strong.

The peak of the high winds will be around the early morning commute.

Those keeping a wary eye on the moderate drought creeping across the state may breathe a sigh of relief this weekend as heavy rains accompanied by strong winds are expected across the state Sunday. Forecast southeasterly winds should have particular impact on Lincoln County coastal areas and elevated locations inland.

A High Wind Watch has been issued for much of coastal CT and Suffolk County for Sunday evening intoSunday night.

This storm will move faster than the last one, but will still bring the potential for localized urban flooding and river flooding.

Temperatures rebounded to the low 60s by the end of the week with showers around. We remain cool and dry Wednesday, followed by a return shower chance Thursday and Friday.

The forecast for Tuesday, Halloween, is for sunny skies and temperatures in the mid to upper 50s.
