It will be even more hard to judge the depth of water on a road at night than in the daytime.

Heavy rain is expected to continue.

On this five year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, we're in for a one-two severe weather punch, but NOT on the order of that destructive superstorm.

We will have continuous updates on the storm's track and impacts through the weekend.

A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for all of CT and is valid through Monday morning. The flooding, if it were to occur, would be mainly of the street and basement variety, as rivers can handle this amount of water.

A high wind warning has been issued for Rockingham County in southeastern New Hampshire and in northern New Hampshire, for wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour early Monday.

High wind gusts coupled with a wet soil may result in uprooted trees which in return would cause power issues throughout the state.

With the very strong jet streams, thunderstorms are also possible but this element of the forecast is not as likely. Officials advise staying inside during high wind warnings. The flash flood warning is in effect from noon on Sunday through the evening.

Sunday: Cloudy with showers developing. The heaviest rain falls this evening through around midnight before slowly tapering off through the AM. Lows in the upper 50s. This could lead to a couple of snow showers early Monday morning. "By trick-or-treat time (sunset is at 5:45pm), temperatures will be dropping from the 50s into the 40s, so the weather will turn out cool and dry for trick or treating", Cameron said.

On Tuesday, expect sunny skies and a high of 54 and a low of 34.
