ACCUWEATHER ALERT: Heavy rain on Sunday

30 October, 2017, 02:26 | Author: Dustin Murphy
  • Andrew Nichols wears yellow rain gear head to toe as he walks Wednesday along Civic Center Drive in Augusta. Nichols finished his shift at Home Depot and was walking in the pouring rain to get to his home on Summerhaven Road. More rain is expected Sunday

As the storm system continues tracking north tonight, look for the coverage of rain to fill back in across the entire area. You can also track the rain using Interactive Radar. Widespread rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches are expected, with localized higher amounts. A flash flood watch is in effect, as well.

Flooding Potential: Flash flooding is possible, especially in urban areas. Also, if traveling, be sure to slow down to avoid hydroplaning and be mindful of slick roads due to fallen leaves.

NBC Connecticut Meteorologists continue to track a powerful storm that will impact the state Sunday into Monday.

Today will see a high of 64 and a low of 43. This tight pressure gradient will allow our winds to really pick up.


Winds are intensifying, forecasted at 30 to 40 miles per hour and with wind gusts expected to reach 65 m.p.h., according to the National Weather Service. As this low strengthens, some strong to damaging wind gusts are expected, first from the southeast ahead of the low, then from the northwest behind the low.

The combination of high winds and more rain on top of an already saturated ground after last week's rain could result in downed limbs and trees. The United Illuminating Company is reporting 117 power outages as of 7 p.m. The wind slowly relaxes for the afternoon on Monday.

Halloween: Sunny, cooler. High: 50s. A High Wind Watch has been posted for most of CT. The secondary low pressure of Philippe will move through the western Gulf of ME early Monday morning and will contain the strongest winds which could reach hurricane force wind gusts for the ME coast.
