The region, particularly northwestern CT, may experience moderate to heavy rain of about 2 to 4 inches on Sunday as a "rapidly-intensifying cyclone" tracks from just off the Carolina coast to near New York City, the service says. During this same time frame the wind will start to pick up and will be gusty, southwest 20-30mph with isolated power outages possible.
A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for all of CT and is valid through Monday morning. Additionally, flooding along rivers, including the Black River, Moose River and Salmon River, is also possible. "The threat of flash flooding is highest in western Massachusetts, but also exists in eastern MA". Winds inland are expected to be 25 to 35 miles per hour, with gusts potentially reaching 40 miles per hour or higher. Recent rains have saturated the ground and southeast wind gusts of 70mph could easily take fully-leafed trees down.

Around noon, heavy rain bands south of the city were dumping 1.16 inches of precipitation per hour just off the Jersey Shore.
