Scattered thunderstorms with the potential to produce damaging winds and quarter-sized hail are dumping rain across the tri-state area, prompting flash flood and other warnings for some parts of the region.
The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning for New Haven County in Connecticut until 2 p.m. as storms dump up to 2 inches of rain per hour on the area. Flash flood warnings for Fairfield County and Westchester County in New York expired at 1 p.m.
Excessive runoff from the heavy rainfall may cause flooding of small creeks and streams and pooling in poor-drainage areas, meteorologists.
The soggy weather is expected to continue to affect the tri-state area into the overnight hours before turning sunnier and less humid over the weekend.
Forecasters expect partly sunny skies for Saturday and Sunday with temperatures in the high 60s.
