Rain/Wind Storm Update

While some areas had some generous rainfall this morning, it was nothing compared to what fell in Connecticut.  Some areas in and around Hartford received over 4 inches! Here is an update of what fell by late this morning in our area:

The strongest winds came late last night and early this morning, here are some of the stronger gusts:

So what’s the outlook for the rest of Wednesday? Although the Flash Flood Watch has been cancelled for more of our area, it’s still in effect for southeastern Rhode Island (including Newport) and Bristol County Massachusetts. Periods of light to moderate rain will continue throughout the day and evening, and a few heavier showers are possible, especially east of Providence.  So for areas like Taunton, Fall River, and New Bedford, there will be a chance of some additional localized street flooding. The damaging wind threat is pretty much over, that’s because the strong low level jet (an areas of fast moving winds a few thousand feet over our heads) has moved to the east.

Some additional showers and drizzle are still likely tonight into Thursday morning; that’s because this front is VERY slow moving and there is also some upper level energy that will be passing through.
