Downpours, wind expected overnight

HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Desperately needed rain arrived on Tuesday afternoon, and that was just round one for the week.

Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest called Tuesday a "classic November day," with the clouds, the rain and the cool temperatures.

Rain moved across the state on Tuesday afternoon and temperatures fell from the 50s to the 40s in many towns and cities.

"We can expect periods of rain this evening and tonight with overnight lows in the 40s," DePrest said.

While rain will be light at times, there will be a few moderate to heavy downpours mixed in, along with a brisk wind.

"Gusts to 30+ mph are likely especially along the coast and in Eastern Connecticut," DePrest said.

The storm will move away on Wednesday, but rain will stick around until about mid-day.

"The sky will remain mostly cloudy during the afternoon, but conditions will be dry for the afternoon drive home," DePrest said.

Highs will be in the low and middle 50s, and most of Veterans Day will be breezy and there could be a few breaks in the clouds.

The break in the wet weather won't last very long.

DePrest said while Thursday morning will be dry, more rain is expected to arrive by mid-day.

"A period of rain is likely during the afternoon and evening. Rainfall totals should remain under 0.50 inches," DePrest said.

Friday will be blustery, with winds possibly gusting 30 miles per hour.

The skies will be sunny and temperatures could reach the mid to upper 50s.

The weekend is expected to be nice, but chilly..
