There's a threat of coastal flooding in southwestern Connecticut this morning, the result of yesterday's drenching rains and continuing showers today.

The National Weather Service says that all the rain could cause "minor to moderate" flooding along the region's shoreline at high tide this morning -- about 10:45 a.m.

Rain, lighter than yesterday, is expected to continue falling over Fairfield and environs until midday, with high temperatures today in the mid-50s. Rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch are possible.

Tonight, after gradual clearing, it should be partly cloudy, with a low around 40.

On Saturday, the skies are predicted to be sunny, with a high near 51 degrees. Saturday night will be partly cloudy, with a low around 33. North wind between 7 and 9 mph.

Sunny weather will continue Sunday, according to the NWS, with a high temperature of about 50 degrees.

And the new work week starts under sunny skies Monday, with high temperatures again in the low 50s.
