After a stormy night of high-speed winds and unrelenting rain, the worst, forecasters said Saturday, is over.
The rain will lighten, the winds will ease and temperatures will rise over the weekend, giving way to a pleasant spring-like Monday.
Spotty showers are expected to continue throughout the state Saturday, but by Sunday, most areas should see little to no precipitation. It will remain cloudy until Monday, when the sun is predicted to break through.
"The winds are going to abate … " said National Weather Service forecaster Lisa Verzella. "Monday looks really nice."
Overnight wind gusts reached up to 80 miles per hour in the mountains and blew at nearly 50 miles per hour in the valleys.
