Highs Tuesday will still reach the low 80s.

Remnants of Nate will be affecting the area today.

"The National Hurricane Center estimates that parts of Western Connecticut could experience between 1-2" of rainfall and winds of up to 30 miles per hour. It will still be cloudy for most of the day with a stiff breeze.

Rain could be heavy at times and we can't rule out a rumble of thunder either. There will be a few showers, but not a wash-out. High temperatures will be in the upper 80s Monday under cloudy skies.

Tonight will be cloudy and muggy with a shower possible.

On Friday (6 October), according to the US National Hurricane Center (NHC), tropical storm Nate intensified into a full-blown hurricane. Expect a high near 66 and a low around 54.

Nate will weaken after crossing onto land, so hurricane-force winds are only a concern for the immediate coastline between New Orleans and Mobile. By the evening we see another wave of rain push in at a 60% chance.

The storm system is about 85 miles (135 km) northeast of Columbus, Ohio with maximum sustained winds of 20 mph (55 km/h), it said. With mostly sunny skies and falling humidity, Tuesday will end up remaining quite mild with highs near 80 degrees.

As mentioned previously, a few lingering showers may hang around early in the morning, but drier air moving in should make for a nice, and warm Monday aftenroon. Lows 80s tomorrow, then cooling into the 70s behind the previously mentioned cold front by Wednesday.
