High Wind Warning, Flood Watch in Effect for Saturday

The National Weather Service this afternoon issued a high wind warning and flood watch for Westport and the tri-state area.

The high wind warning is in effect from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday while the flood watch is in effect for Saturday morning through afternoon.

An advisory said although rain is forecast to develop and spread northeast across the region before midnight, heavy rain is forecast to occur
from around 6 a.m. until around 4 p.m. from southwest to northeast. Two to 3 inches of rain is forecast to occur during this time.

Heavy rain will combine with strong and gusty southeast winds causing widespread urban flooding, including small stream and river flooding. Leaves falling off trees will block drains causing significant ponding of water in normal poor drainage areas, the advisory said.
