HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) - Tropical Storm Henri made landfall during the early afternoon hours of Sunday.
While the worst of the storm has passed, the state will still be seeing the effects of Henri into Monday.
Track any showers associated with Henri on Monday with the Early Warning Pinpoint Doppler:
Henri later weakened to a tropical depression as it moved further inland.
"Henri continues to weaken, and now has maximum sustained winds of 40 mph," Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest said.
The tropical storm warning for Connecticut has since expired.
A storm surge warning was in effect for the coastline, but has expired.
A flood watch is in place statewide until Monday evening.
The high winds have died down, although DePrest said Groton still has a southerly wind of 21 mph.
Wind gusts peaked at 53 at one point in Groton Sunday.
"While there will still be some rain, the tropical downpours have moved out of the state for now," DePrest said.
The entire state can expect a baseline of 1 inch of rain through Sunday night. Areas near the core of the system in Litchfield, Hartford, and Tolland Counties will be areas expected to get closer to 2 inches of rain. Those areas will also get a reprieve in the rain as the eye of the storm crosses.
Vernon had one of the highest rainfall totals, seeing six inches of rain courtesy of Henri.
Landfall happened around 12:15 p.m. near Westerly, RI.
As of 12:30 a.m., Eversource reported 13,970 outages.
Since the circulation associated with Henri will move slowly, DePrest said there will be additional showers and a few thunderstorms on Monday.
Widespread light rain and isolated thunderstorms are also possible.
Temperatures should be in the upper 70s.
