Flood Potential in the Northeast Today Jun 19, 2017

Showers and thunderstorms will be increasing across the Northeast today, with heavy rainfall later this afternoon and tonight. A Flash Flood Watch extends from Maine to  Virginia. 2″ to 4″ rainfall totals are likely, with some areas seeing up to 6″.

A cold front will be slowly pushing across the east, bringing numerous showers and thunderstorms to the area. A rich feed of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico ahead of the front is bringing high humidity to the region, fueling the potential for heavy rain and strong storms. The system will begin to move offshore Tuesday.
