Heavy rain on Sunday — ACCUWEATHER ALERT

Clear and chilly with winds gradually subsiding.

Temperatures will be in the 60s today and stay around 60 tonight. Don't let this deceive you however. Lows in the upper 50s. In western CT, there is a chance of between 2inches to 5 inches of rain. The intensity of the rain should also pick up as well.

Once the strong moves out, the power outage threat will continue into the day on Monday. Also, if traveling, be sure to slow down to avoid hydroplaning and be mindful of slick roads due to fallen leaves. High: Low-mid 60s.

The National Weather Service in Peachtree City said northwest winds of 15 to 25 miles per hour are expected, and occasional gusts of up to 40 miles per hour are possible. It will still be windy as the winds shift behind the system out of the northwest.

Possible impacts include damage to trees, power lines, and property especially given that trees remain fully leafed. Scattered power outages are expected.

Much more on the way, and a bigger concern for strong winds on Sunday night. The core of the strongest winds will begin across the Midcoast around Midnight and continue until the mid morning hours, peaking around sunrise. At least a fair amount of sunshine is expected certainly by the afternoon.
