The stretch of unsettled weather that has gripped southwestern Connecticut the last few days will continue today -- and most of the coming week -- with isolated rain and thunderstorms possible throughout the region.
There also is another warning of possible coastal flooding overnight from the National Weather Service.
In addition to possible showers today, the daytime high temperature is expected to rise to the upper-60s uner mostly cloudy skies with a north wind between 9 and 11 mph.
Rain and thunderstorms are again possible tonight, as the temperature dips to a low in the low-50s, with an east wind at 7 mph becoming west.
The NWS, as it has for the last several nights, has issued a coastal flood advisory from 11 p.m. today to 3 a.m. tomorrow, warning there could be minor flooding along the shoreline during the high-tide period.
Tomorrow, scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible, mainly after 1 p.m. Otherwise, skies may be partly sunny, with a high temperature about 70 degrees. Showers and thunderstorms are also possible tomorrow night as the temperature registers a low in the low-50s.
On Thursday, there is a slight chance of showers as the high temperature rises to the low-70s. Precipitation remains a slight possibility Thursday night and the low temperature will be in the upper-50s.
The outlook for Friday, according to the weather service, may break the stormy cycle with sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-70s.
