Rain, snowmelt could cause flooding in New England

Rain, snowmelt could cause flooding in New England

The National Weather Service has placed flood advisories and watches across the region in anticipation of heavy rain moving into New England on Thursday.

Sipprell said the good news is that after some lingering showers wrap up on Friday, there is no more rain in the forecast for the next seven days.

Ground conditions are quite wet across much of the area so heavy rain could lead to flooding of low lying areas.

Rainfall totals of one to two inches with isolated three inch amounts are expected.

The first weekend of April progressed from miserably heavy rain on Friday (OK, that was technically the last day of March) to lovely sunshine and mild temps on Sunday.

"The flood warning is in effect until further notice", Belk said. Highs Thursday will be in the upper 50s.

Breezy weather continues after the rain on Wednesday with a mostly cloudy sky and highs only in the middle 50s.

Wednesday night: A 20 percent chance of rain before 10pm. High near 60. Southeast wind 8 to 10 miles per hour.

Thursday: Rain. A chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon. A wind advisory is in effect until 4pm for most of northeast Kansas with north winds gusting up to 45 miles per hour.

The NWS's current rainfall forecast for southwest CT is 1.86 inches from Greenwich to Milford and slightly lesser amounts in Litchfield County.

"There is a slight chance for a few strong gusty thunderstorms west and north of NYC Tuesday evening with the approach of a cold front". Low around 41. Southwest wind around 10 miles per hour. A 15-30 miles per hour easterly wind will make it feel even colder. Chance of precipitation is 50%. A quick 0.5 to 1 inches of rain could fall, in just 30 to 60 minutes time.

Thursday night, it will be clear with a low of 34, according to the weather service.
