Weather Watch: Tropical Storm Fay moves out of Connecticut

The tropical storm brought heavy rains and winds to areas as well as some power outages

CONNECTICUT, USA — We're on the WEATHER WATCH for Tropical storm Fay Friday. Fay is the earliest 6th named storm on record.

I know it's freaky to see a storm take aim at Connecticut (passing just to our west). But this is not a storm that will go down in the record books for us. Don't think Sandy or Irene. 

This storm was more on par with your typical fall nor'easter except in summertime with lots of humidity.  

There were over 3,500 power outages across the state overnight Friday into early Saturday morning, but by 6:00 a.m. Saturday that number was down to almost 1,600.

Now, this is all over! We could see an isolated shower this morning, then a scattered shower or storm in the afternoon from a different disturbance. Otherwise, the day will be mostly dry and very humid.

Sunday looks hot and brighter with highs near 90 degrees inland. There is a slight chance for an isolated afternoon storm but most towns stay dry.
