Flood Watch Issued

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

An advisory said recent heavy rainfall has left soil conditions across the watch area saturated. Low pressure is expected to push through the local area Saturday night into Sunday morning.

“While it is too early to determine the exact track, heavy rain is possible across the area which could lead to the potential for flooding,” the advisory said. “Between 1 to 2 inches of rain—locally higher—is expected to fall across the area starting Saturday night and lasting through Sunday morning.”

The advisory said the rainfall has the potential to produce flooding across highly urbanized and poor drainage areas. Roadways could become impassable at times.  In addition, there is a potential for minor stream and river flooding.
