The rain and high winds eventually move out of our area later Monday. A southeast wind is very rare, but they have happened - during Irene for example when the Commonwealth experienced one of the worst power outages in history. Widespread rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches are expected, with localized higher amounts. Additionally, flooding along rivers, including the Black River, Moose River and Salmon River, is also possible.
Our weather today is going to go downhill especially this evening and during the overnight hours. Our focus is for a 6 hour window in which we may see hurricane force winds along the shoreline of CT tonight.
Flash Flood Watches continue in all of Southern New England tonight.

Wednesday should be partly sunny with a high near 54 and a low of 43. Highs are expected to be in the mid-60s Monday and be back to more seasonal low 70s by Tuesday. "By trick-or-treat time (sunset is at 5:45pm), temperatures will be dropping from the 50s into the 40s, so the weather will turn out cool and dry for trick or treating", Cameron said.
