SHELTON WEATHER FORECAST: Rain, snow, rain, snow, oh my!
Had enough rain yet? Well, Mother Nature hasn’t when it comes to Shelton.
Close to another inch of rain could fall on Tuesday late afternoon and evening, adding to the drenching the city already has taken, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).
A Flood Watch is in effect for the region through tonight at 1 a.m., and a Hazardous Weather Outlook also has been issued for southern Connecticut due to the heavy rain and high winds.
The NWS said from 1.5 to 3 inches of rain already has fallen in the area, causing ponding and minor flooding on some roadways. The area has seen wind gusts up to 35 mph, and strong winds should continue into the night and then calm down slightly.
Coming days: Rain and snow
And the outlook for the coming days isn’t exactly encouraging.
More rain is expected during the day on Wednesday in Shelton, and it could switch over to snow on Wednesday night — with an accumulation of up to a half inch possible.
On Thursday, the NWS forecast calls for possible snow in the morning and rain in the afternoon. No significant snow accumulation is predicted.
Friday and Saturday? Snow is possible in Shelton, the NWS said. However, Sunday should be sunny with a high of near 42 degrees.
Temperatures in the coming days will fluctuate from the high 20s to the very low 40s in Shelton.
