Severe Weather & Flood Threat for the Northeast

24 Sep 2021, 3:05 pm

An upper-level low and its associated cold front are slowly moving east through the end of the week, spurring a threat for flooding and isolated severe storms. We’ve already seen heavy rain across parts of the northeast, with the threat centered on New England today.

Severe Threat

The trough continues advancing through New England into Friday. Damaging winds will be a threat, along with isolated tornado potential for the risk region in green.


We will see a few storms linger into the evening hours, with gusty winds and locally heavy rain possible. These will favor areas east of I-93 in New England.

Flood Threat

Heavy rain will be a threat in any thunderstorm that develops.  Excessive rainfall outlooks have been issued by the WPC for Friday, with additional flooding risks into the weekend as a second surge of moisture takes aim at Coastal New England.


Pockets of 1-2″ of rain will be possible with the frontal boundary today. Additional rainfall from tropical impact Teresa could produce heavy rain through the weekend for Maine.
