Rain With Quite A Bit Of Wind Is Expected Late Sunday Night Through Monday

For The Rest Of This Afternoon: Lots of sunshine is expected throughout the rest of this afternoon. Temperatures will be between 45 and 50 Degrees. Winds will be North at 5 to 10 mph.

Tonight: Skies are expected to become cloudy this evening as the wind flow turns into a southeasterly direction importing low-level moisture into the region. Cloudy skies are then expected during the after midnight hours of tonight.

Low temperatures will be near 35 Degrees. Winds will be East to Southeast at 5 to 10 mph.

Sunday: Sunday will be a cloudy day as a strong low pressure system begins to move up the East Coast of the United States. Some scattered showers well out ahead of this storm will affect the area during the afternoon.

High temperatures will be between 45 and 50 Degrees. Winds will be East at 5 to 10 mph.

Sunday Night & Monday: A strong low pressure is going to bring rain and quite a bit of wind to the entire area, primarily late Sunday night through the day on Monday. While there will be heavy rain with this storm system, I do think that strong winds may end up being the bigger threat this time around.

A strong low pressure system will continue its trek up the East Coast of the United States during Sunday night with this storm system moving across western New England and eastern New York State during the day on Monday.

Scattered showers early Sunday evening will become a steady rain by about midnight Sunday night. Rain is then expected during the after midnight hours of Sunday night with the rain becoming heavy at times just before sunrise Monday morning. It’s also expected to become increasingly more windy Sunday night with South winds increasing to 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 40 mph late at night.

Monday looks like it’ll rain all day long with heavy rain likely throughout the morning. In addition to the rain, it is expected to be very windy, especially during the morning into the early afternoon hours with South winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 50 to 55 mph at times. These very windy conditions will likely lead to isolated to perhaps scattered downed trees leading to isolated to scattered power outages.

The rain will come to an end by Monday evening with total rainfall amounts of 1.50 inches to 2.50 inches across the region. These rainfall amounts will lead to the potential for not only street, highway and poor drainage flooding, but also the possibility of river and stream flooding across the region. In fact, latest river stage guidance points to most rivers approaching flood stage with a few rivers reaching minor to moderate flooding. Also, be aware that Monday morning’s commute is likely to be one big mess due to the combination of heavy rain and very windy conditions. Be prepared for slow going and the potential for lots of ponding on roads and some roads being flooded.

Temperatures during Sunday night and Monday will be in the 50 to 55 Degree range.
