Fierce winds kick off work week in western CT

A wind advisory is in effect for parts of Connecticut as the workweek kicks off with a blast of cold air.
Wind advisories are in effect for Fairfield and New Haven counties until 6 p.m.
Blustery and potentially damaging winds, whipping near 45 to 50 mph, are expected. Those winds could take down some tree limbs, potentially causing power outages.
High temperatures Monday will be in the mid-40s, but the bitter wind will make it feel colder.
There's also a slight chance for an isolated flurry or snow shower in parts of the region.
The chill sticks around into Tuesday. For the rest of the week, conditions will be mostly dry with seasonable or mild temperatures.
