Overnight wind advisory issued, rain to continue through Sunday into morning commute

High Wind Watch in effect from late Sunday night through Monday afternoon for Monroe, Wayne and Northern Cayuga counties.

With the possibility of up to five inches of rain in sections of NY state possible on Sunday and into Monday, government leaders and agencies are urging people to take precautions. Cebulko said wind gusts in some places could reach as high as 60 miles per hour but will vary across the region.

A significant amount of rainfall, in the range of 1 to 3 inches, is also forecast with this storm, according to the NWS. In West Haven, a soggy tree fell over Shingle Hill Road between Marks Drive and Marydale Road. It's the million dollar question and it's the difference between 10,000 power outages and 100,000 power outages. The higher end of that range is more likely in central/western CT. As of 5:30 p.m., there were 33 outages on Long Island, but none were on the East End.

Travel has been already been affected by the storm.

Airport officials said most flights are still running on time, but travelers are advised to check with their airline before heading to Bradley. High pressure will bring a lighter breeze Tuesday and sunshine, but we stay cool with highs in the mid-50s.

Showers may linger into Monday.

CBS3 Meteorologist Chelsea Ingram says, first comes about one-to-three inches of rain throughout the day. Can't rule out some lingering showers through the morning to about midday on Monday but the heaviest and most of the rain will fall before midnight. The wind slowly relaxes for the afternoon on Monday. Lows in the upper 50s.

Fear not, Halloween still looks good.
