Rain could be heavy at times overnight

Posted: Updated:

Rain continued to fall across the state on Wednesday afternoon, and will continue through the evening.

Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest said rain will continue overnight, and could be heavy at times.

There is even a chance for a rumble of thunder, especially after midnight.

Track the rain with Early Warning Pinpoint Doppler here.

DePrest said the first round of rain drenched the state with 0.75 inches to 2.5 inches of rain.

"We received reports of 2.26” in Waterford and 2.46” in Uncasville. Bradley International Airport received 1.11” of rain, which brought the yearly total up to 29.42”," DePrest said.

Even though we've seen some much-needed rain this week, DePrest said we need plenty more to make up for the deficit, which is just under 13 inches.

The warmest temperatures will be near the coast Wednesday night, reading into the 50s.

The rain should end by Thursday morning, leading to a partly sunny day with temperatures in the 50s to near 60.

"That is quite pleasant when you consider the normal high for Dec. 1 is 45 degrees," DePrest said.

There will be a fairly strong west-northwesterly wind that could gust to 30 mph or higher.

Temperatures drop back into the 40s and 50s for Friday.
