HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

A warm and soaking rain passed through the state Monday evening.

A dense fog advisory has extended to 1 a.m. for Fairfield, New Haven, Middlesex and New London counties.

Drivers were urged to be on alert.

A wind advisory has been issued for northern Connecticut from 11 a.m. on Tuesday until 6 p.m.

Heavy rain fell across the state on Monday evening, and temperatures remained warm in the 50s and lower 60s.

Rain will continue to fall overnight, and a few rumbles of thunder could be heard in some parts of the state.

Overnight will be muggy and mild.

"Temperatures will likely stay above the 50 degree mark for overnight lows. However, the mercury should dip into the 40s in hills of Western Connecticut by dawn," Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest said.

Tuesday will be a nice day with partly to mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will be in record territory again.

While it will be a clear day, it will be windy.

"Winds that strong could potentially cause scattered power outages," DePrest said.

Temperatures will dip back into the 30s in many areas by dawn on Wednesday. The day will feature sunshine and light winds.

A coastal storm will bring more rain on Thursday.

"It’ll start out as light rain, drizzle, and fog in the morning. Rain should become steadier in the afternoon and it will continue Thursday evening," DePrest said.

Rain will end by late Thursday night and Friday will be partly sunny.
