CONNECTICUT -

Heavy storms drenched the coastline and prompted the National Weather Service to issue flash flood warnings and watches for parts of Fairfield County.

A flash flood warning was in effect Tuesday but ended at 7 a.m. and a flash flood watch expired at 12 p.m.            

Heavy rain fell through the morning and scattered showers are expected throughout the day.

News 12 meteorologists say showers and a thunderstorm are also possible later. A quarter to half an inch of rain is possible.          

Various roads and bridges were closed as a result of the potential flooding on Monday and Tuesday including the West Main Street Bridge in Stamford, officials say.
