Flash Flood Watch Issued

The National Weather Service in New York has issued a Flash Flood Watch for Westport and area through Friday afternoon.

Heavy showers and thunderstorms will become increasingly likely as a system interacts with a moist and an unstable air mass over the area, the Weather Service said.

Localized rainfall rates could exceed 2 inches in an hour if thunderstorms train over the same area for an hour, which would cause urban and small stream flash flooding, an advisory said.

Overall 1 to 2 inches of rainfall are expected across the area tonight into Friday, the Weather Service said. Additional bouts of heavy showers and thunderstorms are possible this weekend into early next week, which may prolong the threat for flooding.
