Winds to subside, leading to showers Monday morning

Posted: Updated:
HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

It was a windy Sunday, but that is expected to subside as the evening goes on.

A wind advisory was in effect for multiple counties in Connecticut for most of the day on Sunday. That advisory ends at 6 p.m.

Hartford, Northern Litchfield, Tolland and Windham counties were expected to experience bursts of wind through early afternoon.

"Gusts generally ranged between 35-45 MPH, with the highest gusts of 48 MPH at New London Ledge and 44 MPH in Storrs," Meteorologist Mike Cameron said.

As the night goes on, Cameron said clouds are expected to thicken and the temperature overnight will be in the lower 40s.

"By around dawn, showers will also come. Right now, it looks like they will be rain, given the fact readings will be well above freezing," Cameron said.

Track the showers here.

Showers are expected to kick off the work-week on Monday morning.

"In all likelihood, we have the opportunity of picking up a quarter inch of rain at most because, by 9 or 10 a.m., the storm and its rain will have moved east of the state already," Cameron said.

After the rain, temperatures on Monday are expected to be in the upper-50s and low 60s.

Cooler weather moves in for Tuesday and Wednesday.
