Hunker Down, Darien -- Wind, Rain, Fog, Flooding in Forecast

Saturday's weather forecaster works hard for a living; consider us all cursed with some interesting weather for the day.

The Darien weather forecast for Saturday is a lulu: The National Weather Service says it may be very windy, rather rainy and there may be floods on top of that (or, rather, seeping in from below).

The weather service issued a "Special Weather Statement" (about fog early in the day), a "Hazardous Weather Outlook," a "Flood Watch" and a "Wind Advisory."

In other words, there's a possibility of:

  • Patches of fog early this morning (drive carefully)
  • Heavy rain late this morning through this evening
  • Flooding -- a Flood Watch remains in effect from 11 a.m. through late Saturday night
  • Strong winds may blow from noon through 10 p.m. in coastal areas

Here's the Darien-specific forecast from the weather service:
