Flood Watch Issued

The National Weather Service in Upton, N.Y. has issued a flood watch for Westport and area from tonight through Friday afternoon.

An advisory said rainfall of 1 to 2 inches, with locally higher amounts, could lead to flash flooding of small streams and urban and poor drainage areas

It said a deep tropical air mass over the area will provide the moisture needed for widespread heavy rainfall as developing low pressure over the southeast United States tracks north and passes south and east of Long Island Thursday night through Friday morning.

Recent heavy rainfall has also left saturated soil conditions, aiding in the possibility for flooding. the advisory said.

Coastal Flood Advisory Update

The National Weather Service in Upton, N.Y. has issued a coastal flood advisory for Westport and area from 8 p.m. today to 2 a.m. Thursday.

The high tide cycle this evening will be at or slightly higher than Tuesday night’s due to the current phase of the moon, an advisory said.

In addition, ocean swells will keep water from channeling out of the South Shore bays. An easterly flow earlier in the week has also caused water to pile into western Long Island Sound.

Conditions will closely resemble those of Tuesday evening with tidal departures ranging between 1/2 to 1 feet above normal around the time of high tide, the advisory said. High tide is 12:17 a.m. Thursday in Westport.
