New Canaan's Sunday forecast: More rain, possible flooding
Published 7:31 am, Sunday, August 7, 2011
Rain continues to fall across southwestern Connecticut early this morning, which the National Weather Service warns could trigger flooding in some areas because of the periodic heavy showers that began over 12 hours ago.
There is the potential for more rain -- and isolated thunderstorms -- throughout the NWS says in its "hazardous weather outlook" issued for the region a second consecutive day.
Besides the threat of more heavy rain, the daytime high temperature should be about 80 degrees, according to the forecast, with a south wind around 14 mph.
Precipitation is also likely tonight, as the temperature dips to about 70 degrees.
Tomorrow, there is a chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 1 p.m. Otherwise, the skies should be partly sunny, with a high near 85 degrees. There will be a northwest wind between 10 and 13 mph.
Tuesday also brings a chance of showers and thunderstorms after noon.
