A wind advisory is in effect for the shoreline and the southeastern part of the state.

A coastal advisory/warning has also been issued for the shoreline part of the state with possible flooding along Long Island Sound, as tides are 1-3 feet above normal.

Showers will develop around 8 p.m. Monday with the heaviest rain arriving around midnight. In total, one to two inches of rain is expected.

Areas that are prone to flooding along the coast may see some issues overnight.

The highest elevations of Litchfield County could see a very light snowfall accumulation prior to a transition to plain rain. While we aren't expecting much of an accumulation, elevations above 600 feet could see a quick inch of snow on grassy surfaces.
