Chilly start of the week across Connecticut before midweek rain
News 12 Storm Watch Team Meteorologist Michele Powers says temperatures will take a dive for the start of the week on Monday before a chance of rain arrives on Wednesday.
WHAT'S NEW: Temperatures fall to near freezing or below in spots and this is just the beginning.
Freeze Warnings and Watches are up for counties that haven't seen the widespread hard freezes.
The growing season is over just about everywhere now in the tri state.
Slight wind chill in the a.m., so bundle up. Sky stays nice and clear.
WHAT'S NEXT: Tracking a potential coastal storm for early Wednesday.
Since temperatures will be colder, we have to watch elevations as the precipitation moves in later Tuesday.
There may be some mixing of wet snow or sleet.
There is a better chance of this up through the Hudson Valley into New England.
Most areas will see a chilly rain.
Winds will kick in and, of course watch, for some coastal and tidal flooding that usually occurs with these types of storms.
Staying colder with below normal temperatures all week and possibly into part of next week as well.
