Rain continues through around midnight, followed by scattered showers overnight. Areas well north of I-84 will see some snow mixed in with the rain after midnight.
Close to 2 inches of rainfall is possible before the storm moves out in the early morning hours Tuesday.
A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Westchester and Rockland from noon Monday to 1 a.m. Tuesday. A Coastal Flood Warning is in effect for Southern Fairfield County from noon to 3 p.m. Monday and from midnight to 4 a.m. Tuesday.
