The National Weather Service has issues various hazardous weather outlooks for the state of Connecticut, including coastal flood advisories, mostly west of the Connecticut River. We should be seeing wind guts tonight and tomorrow of 35-45 mph statewide, prompting the outlook. These wind gusts combined with some locally heavy rainfall and thawing ground could cause localized power outages, and small limb and tree damage. Temperatures in the low to mid 30's in the morning will slowly rise through the day, changing any frozen areas of precipitation to all rain by 4pm statewide, topping out in the high 30's to low 40's by Wednesday evening.

The following is a statement from the NWS regarding the conditions expected for the coastal areas of CT, NY, and NJ.

Any accumulations of frozen precipitation from this storm will cease to exist by tomorrow evening, as the warm sector of the storm fully overtakes CT, RI, and Southern MA. All rain will be expected in these areas for the evening commute.
