The National Weather Service is forecasting some nasty weather into the early part of the week, including periods of heavy rain and strong winds. Though these very high winds will be short-lived, they will likely do some damage in terms of trees coming down, and power knocked out. "The threat of flash flooding is highest in western Massachusetts, but also exists in eastern MA".

New Yorkers can expect sustained, strong winds with even stronger gusts.

The total possible accumulation is a half inch, accordign to the National Weather Service.

But the rain clouds and high winds should lift in time for Tuesday night's Halloween festivities. Download the AccuWeather app for continuing updates on the storm, and tune in Eyewitness News throughout the day for updates from meteorologists Lee Goldberg, Bill Evans, Amy Freeze and Jeff Smith.

Rain will become widespread this evening and begin to come down heavily at times. The intensity of the rain should also pick up as well.

We're forecasting another 1 to 3 inches of rain throughout the state. Temperatures will likely fall back into the 40s to start Monday morning, and afternoon highs are only expected to top out in the 50s.

That wind should kick up around midnight and continue into the afternoon Monday, creating a cooler and blustery start for the workweek.

A few more showers are forecast for Monday morning, and the wind will linger.

"The weather is looking stellar with a partly to mostly sunny sky".

An area of low pressure will ride up the stalled front Sunday evening into Monday morning.
