WESTPORT — The more than 100 local power outages, reported in town early Thursday after an hours-long storm of blustery winds and steady rainfall buffeted the region, have been restored.

Eversource had reported that 116 Westport customers’ electric service had yet to be restored as of 5 a.m. Thursday, but within an hour no more local outages were being reported by the power company.

Thousands more outages, however, still were reported around the state at 7:30 a.m. Thursday.

The outages were blamed primarily on winds, which periodically gusted up to nearly 50 mph throughout Wednesday afternoon into nighttime.

The stormy weather was triggered as a cold front moved through the region, causing Wednesday’s relatively balmy temperatures in the mid-50s to plunge to near-freezing levels overnight.

The temperature had risen only to the upper-30s by early Thursday.

But skies are forecast to be sunny Thursday and the temperature is expected to hit a high in the mid-40s, according to the National Weather Service.

Friday is expected to remain clear during daytime and be slightly warmer, but clouds are expected to move in overnight.

Rain is again forecast for Saturday, although temperatures are expected to rise into the 50s, the weather service says.

Clear skies are expected to return Sunday.
