A major storm system is moving northwest of our area bringing periods of heavy rain and strong winds over New England
The wind and heavy rain continue overnight. Downpours combined with wind gusts up to 40-50 mph will lead to slow travel. Watch for street flooding, limited visibility, scattered power outages and scattered wind damage.
Rainfall amounts of 1″ to 2.5″ is expected. While beneficial for our drought conditions, this will lead to a lot of run-off and ponding/flooding on the roads. After the heaviest rain moves out overnight expect lingering lighter showers on Tuesday morning
On Tuesday, we’ll see partly to mostly cloudy skies, mild temperatures with gusty winds. There’s a chance of a lingering shower in spots during the morning
