Early Warning Weather

Heavy rains fall in parts of CT

Posted: Updated:

Scattered showers popped up Friday morning, continued throughout the day and were expected to last into Saturday.

A flash flood warning issued for New London County until 7:45 p.m. Central Windham and northeastern tolland counties were under the flood warnings and street flooding were possible. People were reminded to not drive through flooded streets. 

There was lots of rain throughout eastern Connecticut, according to WFSB Meteorologist Melissa Cole. There were reports of some areas getting two inches of rain. 

"It would be nice if we could get it to spread out a little bit," Cole said.

 Drivers were advised to slow down their speed and possibly let the wicked weather pass them by. 

Besides the rain fall, there were reports of lighting strikes. 

Earlier in the day, western Connecticut saw 1/2 to one inch of rain, Cole said. 

More showers are expected on Saturday in Connecticut between noon and 3 p.m. As colder air comes in from the north, some of the rain changes to snow showers. Right on the border, the northwest and north east border and the hill/ higher elevations towns could see some wet snowflakes mixing in with the showers.  

There will be wind gusts of 30 mph to 40 mph on Saturday. 

Temps for Saturday will hover in the 50s for most of the state.
