The 4 p.m. Saturday update continues to look worse for Central New York - and Upstate in general - as forecasters say the worst could come between Sunday evening and Monday morning. It's the million dollar question and it's the difference between 10,000 power outages and 100,000 power outages.

We're forecasting another 1 to 3 inches of rain throughout the state.

"Flash flooding in urban and poor-drainage areas, including streets and in homes and businesses, is possible", according to MEMA.

Below is the RPM computer model's forecast for wind gusts during the height of the storm (Sun10pm to Monday 4am). A flash flood watch was put into effect beginning at 4 p.m. today and ending Monday at noon for portions of Jefferson, Lewis, Oswego and Cayuga counties.

Heavy rain and strong winds caused storm damage throughout CT on Sunday evening.

The low overnight at the Covington airport was 41 and highs are only expected to reach the low 50s. Monday night our wind direction will change, becoming west.

The high wind and steady rain could lead to some shoreline flooding.

Wind Damage: Power outages and tree damage likely, structural damage possible. "Strong wind will last past midnight until the pre-dawn hours Monday; rain will be steady just past midnight but become showery during the wee hours".

Wednesday: Mostly sunny, increasing clouds late. Highs are expected to be in the mid-60s Monday and be back to more seasonal low 70s by Tuesday. Lows in the upper 50s.
