The National Weather Service is warning of the potential for flooding in Fairfield and the surrounding area over the next two days.

A hazardous weather outlook has been issued for southern Connecticut, northern New Jersey, and southeast New York. Rain is expected to start later this evening (Tuesday), becoming heavy as the night goes on. Heavy rain is expected to continue through Wednesday, possibly mixing with some snow in northern areas Wednesday night, making for hazardous travel conditions at the beginning of the holiday weekend.

The weather service predicts temperatures will hover in the upper 30s today and tonight, but will get much warmer tomorrow, perhaps reaching 60 degrees. There is the potential for snow and freezing rain Wednesday night, however, as temperatures once again are likely to drop below freezing.

The forecast for Thanksgiving in Fairfield is breezy but clear with a high of about 33. Friday and Saturday look to be sunny and clear, but chilly, with temperatures remaining in the low 30s.
