Rain Into Monday Morning…Watching the Rivers

We will see the rain wind down overnight, but some lingering showers are possible for Monday morning.   We’ll be watching the rivers closely on Monday.  So far, 1 to 1.5″ of rain has fallen across the area.

A warm front has lifted across Southern New England, and temperatures may jump into the 50s this evening with occasional rain showers.

The rain may actually be coming to an end around midnight.

The cold front will likely be offshore by dawn and drier air will begin to work into the region.  Around 8AM, expect to see some sunshine.

While the skies will be dry, the roads will likely still be wet with large puddles.  Keep that in mind while you’re driving in the morning.  Some of those puddles could be hiding some big pot holes.

The rest of the day looks quiet weather-wise.  Temperatures will hold stead in the 40s with a blend of clouds and sunshine.

While the weather will be quiet, area rivers will continue to rise.  The river we’ll have to watch the most is the Pawcatuck.  Some low-lying areas of Hopkinton could begin to flood late Monday.  The hydrograph below shows the river forecast (purple line) with the water coming close to a minor flood Monday evening.

The Pawtuxet through Warwick and Cranston will swell through the day on Monday and crest Monday evening.  The Pawtuxet should remain within its banks, however.

 

The Wood River will also see a big rise, but not enough to put into flood stage.  Still, we’ll watch all rivers and streams closely.

 

Many smaller rivers and streams are close to overflowing their banks, if they haven’t already.  If you have a brook or stream on your property, you should watch it closely through Monday.
