    Scattered showers and downpours moved into the state this morning, with winds gusting at 20 to 30 miles per hour and causing some tree issues. As of 2:30 p.m., wind gusts have reached 40 miles per hour in Bridgeport and at Bradley Airport.

    A flash flood watch has been issued for northern Connecticut.

    The Cross Sound Ferry Seajet was canceled today due to the weather.

    Eversource reported 5,000 power outages around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday and United Illuminating reported nearly 600 customers without power.

    Winds will increase with a rising chance for showers and even a thunderstorm.

    Winds will gust between 45 and 60 mph, which could lead to scattered tree damage and power outages. 

    By tonight and early Wednesday morning, heavy rain will become widespread with the potential for 1 to 3 inches of rain. Widespread flooding is not anticipated although pockets of urban street flooding are possible.

    A few strong to severe thunderstorms might develop in a few towns as pockets of instability move overhead.

    The threat for damaging wind will end by daybreak Wednesday although rain might linger through the day.
