It made for a soaking rain and caused ponding on roads. But it was a bit less than the 2 to 3 inches reported in parts of New Jersey on Friday. 

More rain was possible overnight along with patchy fog as temperatures drop into the mid-50s across Fairfield County. 

Showers are likely again Saturday, with patchy fog in the morning. It will be mostly cloudy, with a high in the mid-60s. The chance of rain is 60 percent, but it won't be as torrential as it was on Friday.

Temperatures will drop Saturday night into the mid-40s with more rain possible. 

The sun could peek out on Sunday, but there is still a 30 percent chance of showers. Otherwise, it will be partly sunny, with a high near 60. 

When does the sun come out again? On Monday, just in time for a new week of work.
