Nate to bring rain; High humidity to start the week

The remnants of Nate - the hurricane-turned-tropical depression - will keep CT wet Monday.

More than 1 inch of rain could fall by Monday afternoon, according to a hazardous weather outlook from the National Weather Service.

South Jersey will only have some scattered showers, though brief heavy rain and wind gusts up to 30 mph will be possible through the morning hours across a large swath of the state.

As far as Columbus Day weekends go, they don't get more sticky and summery than this one. The breezes will relax after sunset, and the clouds and showers keep us in the mid 70s. The rain coverage decreases during the day with highs in the low to mid 80s.

Tropical Storm Nate weakened Sunday after making its second landfall in MS, but remnants from the storm are expected to impact the New York City area.

The moisture was obvious Sunday, with dew point temperatures - a measure of humidity - hovering in the steamy mid 70s. The next round of heavier rain looks to move in late Monday afternoon into the evening. The first part of Tuesday will stay dry and then rain chances increases into the evening and continues into Wednesday morning. The rain could linger into early Tuesday morning before it clears out again. Heat will build slightly for the end of the work week into the weekend, with highs slated to hit the upper 70s. High pressure will build in for Tuesday and deliver enough dry air to allow breaks of sun to develop Tuesday with a fresh northwesterly breeze. By Thursday, we'll just see a chance of isolated showers.

Saturday will be mostly sunny with a high near 73 and a low of 56.

Sunday: Expect a mostly sunny to partly cloudy, warm and humid day with a 10 to 20% chance of rain and storms and temperatures in the mid 80s.
