HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Following a wet and gusty night, some wind remained on Thursday morning after the departure of Hurricane Patricia's remnants.

The rain also continued to move out.

“All of this messy weather should end by mid-morning as a cold front sweeps through the state,” said meteorologist Scot Haney.

As of 6 a.m., more than 2,000 Eversource customers were without power as the wind and heavy rains brought down some power lines. United Illuminating only reported less than two dozen.

Haney said rainfall totals will range from between 1 inch to 3 inches. However, 4 inches could have fallen in parts of the state.

“Roads are going to be wet for this morning's commute, but the afternoon drive home will be much better, even though there could be a stray shower or two,” Haney said.

The sky is expected to become partly sunny and temperatures could rise into the 70s. Near-record warmth is possible.

“The record high for the greater Hartford area for Oct, 29 is 77 degrees, set all the way back in 1918,” Haney said. “The record in Bridgeport is 73 degrees, set in 1971.”

Cooler air will eventually settle in Thursday night and temperatures will dip to between 35 and 45 degrees under a mainly clear sky.
