National Weather Service: That Nor’Easter Is About to Hit Us
Well let's just thank our lucky stars that it is not colder. We have some crazy weather on the way that seems to bring home the phrase "March comes in like a lion". Let's hope that it goes out like a lamb.
The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch from Friday morning through Saturday morning.
A large storm will develop off the east coast on Friday. Rain will develop late Thursday night and continue into Friday night, heavy at times. The rain could mix with snow, especially over higher terrain of the southern Taconics and Litchfield Hills, but rainfall totals of around 2 inches are possible. Rain will produce significant rises on streams, creeks and rivers. If a persistent band of heavy rain develops over the area some flooding will be possible. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop. -National Weather Service
