Remnants of Hurricane Nate To Bring Only Rain To Connecticut

Monday, 09 Oct, 2017

MORE SHOWERS: We'll quickly turn cloudy on Wednesday, and then, you'll see scattered showers in the afternoon.

Rain should continue without interruption through mid-day Monday before tapering off from west to east later in the afternoon. Saturday and Sunday will have a mix of clouds and sun with highs warming back up into the mid and upper 70s. Temperatures will warm to the low and mid 80s.

Thursday and Friday will have sunny skies with little to no chance for any rain. Should be close enough to central IN to provide consistent rain chances for the southern half of the state later this morning.

Buttrick said the combination of storms today and the tropical remains of Nate tomorrow could dump between 1 and 2 inches of rain on parts of MA. Winds will be gusty as well - 20-30 miles per hour during the day and evening Monday.

Much of the day will be dry. Tuesday will be mainly dry, other than an isolated, morning shower.

Bands of rain will begin sweeping into Southwest Virginia during the day Sunday into Sunday night and early Monday morning, with widespread 1-3 inches of rain expected (and locally more) along and west of the Blue Ridge, trailing off to lesser amount to the east. The latest models are suggesting the steadiest and heaviest rain will be Monday afternoon and Monday night.

Starting the morning off dry, but patchy dense fog has started to develop over portions of central Indiana. It will be very warm for early October with some areas near 90 mid-week.

An area of high pressure over eastern Canada will drift over New England for the second half of the week and attempt to control our weather from Wednesday through Saturday, instituting a cooler easterly breeze that will originate off of the Atlantic Ocean. Daily high temperatures will remain above average, however, reaching the upper 70s and lower 80s.

Monday's rain could help ease building drought conditions in Livingston and Wyoming counties, which are classified as "abnormally dry" this week by the U.S. Drought Monitor, but could also raise the risk of urban flooding in some areas. "It's not going to be something that will cause any significant impact here; just a day of some rain with some heavy showers".
