FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- A Flash Flood Watch is in place for southern Fairfield County from noon Friday through 6 a.m. Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.

A slow-moving cold front will bring heavy rains to Fairfield County on Friday afternoon. A total of 1 and 2 inches of rain are expected, with localized amounts of up to 3 inches possible, the weather service said.

A huge system that soaked the Midwest and Appalachia earlier this week is moving into the area, according to the National Weather Service.

The heaviest rains are expected to coincide with high tide on Long Island Sound, which could exacerbate coastal flooding.

Residents are reminded to be mindful of the forecast and be prepared to take action should flooding occur.

The rain is likely to turn into downpours starting Friday afternoon. Winds will pick up as well, with gusts of up to 30 mph.

The rain will likely taper off by Saturday morning, and a sunny weekend with highs in the low to mid 70s, according to the forecast.
