Heavy Rain, A Few Strong Storms Still for the Northeast
A storm system tracking across the Northeast overnight and into Thursday morning continues to bring a threat for a few strong thunderstorms and heavy rainfall.
Flash flooding due to training heavy rain and thunderstorms is the biggest concern today given the devastating deluge of rainfall one week ago from Ida’s remnants, but a few gusty thunderstorms are also possible ahead of a cold front even though there is no official severe weather risk area outlined today.
Some spots have already received several inches of rain, but so far flooding reports have been few and far between.
Heavy rain will linger along the coastline of New England on Thursday, bringing the flooding concern to the I-95 corridor. A few gusty thunderstorms are possible especially east of I-95 into the early to mid afternoon.
By the evening, much of the energy for storms will be offshore, but heavy rain will continue in spots.
By Thursday night, most of the storms will pull towards the Atlantic, drying us out by Friday.
Storms rainfall totals look to be between 2″ and 4″ with localized spots seeing 5″. This could result in the flooding risk.
