"Heavy rain will continue in western CT and come to eastern CT over the next several hours", Meteorologist Mike Cameron said. The intensity of the rain should also pick up as well. You may get alerts on your phone for the flash flood warnings. A High Wind Watch has been posted for most of CT. The low overnight at the Covington airport was 41 and highs are only expected to reach the low 50s. Some minor low-lying flooding is possible along the river banks on Monday.

Much more on the way, and a bigger concern for strong winds on Sunday night. Recent rains have saturated the ground and southeast wind gusts of 70mph could easily take fully-leafed trees down.

In addition, the weather service noted, strong winds can make driving hard - especially if you have a high-profile vehicle - in open areas and on elevated roads and bridges. "By midnight, the wind will be sustained at 15-30 MPH, with gusts that could go as high as 50-60 MPH inland and over 60 MPH along the Shoreline", Cameron said.

ICICI Bank Q2 net falls Rs 1044 cr
In the year-ago quarter, the lender had gained Rs5,682.03 crore by selling a stake in its life insurance arm. Analysts on average had expected a net profit of 24.91 billion rupees, according to Thomson Reuters data.

Downed trees and power lines are expected. Keep in mind, be watchful of nearby streams and creeks as they will likely crest sometime Monday afternoon/evening.

Wednesday should be partly sunny with a high near 54 and a low of 43. A cold front approaches late in the day Friday to once again bring a chance for some showers. If the high pressure system to the north ends up being stronger and winning out however, then the forecast could end up being drier with more sunshine. Expect the worst of it between 10 p.m. and 3 a.m. Monday.

When: Sunday through Monday morning.
