FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. – The nor'easter predicted for Wednesday may not be as strong as previously forecasted, but it could still bring dangerous high winds and possible coastal flooding to Fairfield County by midday.

The National Weather Service issued a high wind warning, starting at 1 p.m. Wednesday and carrying through until 4 a.m. Thursday. Gusts up to 60 mph are possible, which could bring down trees and power lines.

Rain and snow are expected midday, but with little  accumulation, especially closer to the coastline. However, coastal flooding and breaking waves of 3 to 6 feet may threaten the low-lying areas along Long Island Sound. 

Temperatures are likely to be highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s.
