Thick Fog and Heavy Rain Tonight



    A Colon Cancer Patient Gets the Right Care at the Right Time
    Heavy fog is affecting visibility on the roads in Andover.

    Scattered showers are moving through the state and thick fog is rolling in, reducing visibility on the roads.

    Dense fog advisories have been issued for seven of the state's eight counties until 6 a.m. Saturday.

    Rain will also pick up, with the heaviest, steadiest rain coming down between 3 and 6 a.m., according to Chief First Alert Meteorologist Brad Field. Flashes of lightning and rumbles of thunder are also possible. A flood watch is in effect for Litchfield County.

    We'll see temperatures in the 40s overnight and it won't warm up much during the day Saturday.

    Strong winds are also moving in from the northwest, where the air is cold. Winds gusting between 25 and 50 mph Saturday will create the potential for some scattered power outages.

    Wind advisories are in effect for the northern part of the state – in Hartford, Litchfield, Tolland and Windham counties – from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday.

    Scattered showers and even some snow is possible Sunday afternoon and into the evening. We could see some accumulation in the northern hills.

    Next week will be chilly and wet.
