Severe Storm, Flash Flood Risk For The Northeast

1 Jul 2017, 12:09 pm

After a soggy and stormy Friday across parts of the northeast, locals should be ready for yet another round of wet and stormy weather for the start of the weekend.

As thunderstorms fire up through the day Saturday, a few of the stronger thunderstorms could create high or (locally) damaging winds, small hail, and even a tornado can’t be ruled out. Here’s the severe weather outlook for Saturday.

Heavy rain may cause concern for flash flooding in parts of New York and New England. With a general 1-3″ of rainfall expected by Sunday widespread, there could be much higher amounts locally under some thunderstorms.

Rain totals through mid morning Sunday. Locally higher amounts are possible in thunderstorms

There is a heightened risk of flash flooding through the day across northern New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire. Flash flooding can be dangerous as water tends to rise very quickly, and can be powerful enough to wash out land or roads. Never drive through flooded roads.

 

Be alert for quick flooding to occur as heavy rain falls through the weekend
