The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for Westport and area from Friday afternoon through late Friday night.
It said a slow moving cold front will move towards the area on Friday. Rain will increase in coverage during the afternoon and become heavy at times at night with the potential for thunderstorms.
Total rainfall is expected to range between 1 and 2 inches with localized amounts up to 3 inches in the heavier showers, the Weather Service said.
Additionally, the heaviest rain is expected to coincide with high tide on the Atlantic and western Long Island Sound Friday night which could exacerbate flooding along the South Shore of Long Island and southern Fairfield County.
