FLASH FLOOD WATCH FOR THIS EVENING THROUGH LATE TONIGHT...

327 AM EST Fri Nov 9 2018
...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM THIS EVENING THROUGH LATE TONIGHT... The Flash Flood Watch continues for * Portions of southern Connecticut, northeast New Jersey, and southeast New York, including the following areas, in southern Connecticut, Northern Fairfield, Northern Middlesex, Northern New Haven, Northern New London, Southern Fairfield, Southern Middlesex, Southern New Haven, and Southern New London. In northeast New Jersey, Eastern Bergen, Eastern Essex, Eastern Passaic, Eastern Union, Hudson, Western Bergen, Western Essex, Western Passaic, and Western Union. In southeast New York, Bronx, Kings (Brooklyn), New York (Manhattan), Northern Nassau, Northern Queens, Northern Westchester, Orange, Putnam, Richmond (Staten Island), Rockland, Southern Nassau, Southern Queens, and Southern Westchester.

* From this evening through late tonight. *

Low pressure will approach the tri-state area today and pass through during the night. Rainfall is expected to begin this afternoon into early evening and become moderate to heavy during the evening. The rain then becomes lighter and tapers off during the overnight hours.

 * Rainfall amounts will generally average between 1 and 2 inches, however locally higher amounts will be possible. *

The combination of heavy rainfall and leaf clogged drainages will pose a threat for flash flooding across the entire watch area. Across low lying coastal areas, rising tides this evening will pose an enhanced threat for flash flooding. Across the flashy river basins of Northeastern New Jersey and the Lower Hudson Valley, quick water level rises are possible across small rivers, streams, and creeks, with flooding of adjacent areas.

 PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation. You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should flash flood warnings be issued.

Wow! I cleaned out the storm drains on my side of the street on Tuesday (yes, I am that kind of crazy), but with all the leaves falling, I’m not sure it will make a difference tonight.

Thanks, Max.
