    The National Weather Service in Upton has issued a

    * Flash Flood Watch for portions of southern Connecticut,
    northeast New Jersey, and southeast New York, including the
    following areas, in southern Connecticut, Northern Fairfield,
    Northern Middlesex, Northern New Haven, Southern Fairfield,
    and Southern New Haven. In northeast New Jersey, Eastern
    Bergen, Eastern Essex, Eastern Passaic, Eastern Union, Hudson,
    Western Bergen, Western Essex, Western Passaic, and Western
    Union. In southeast New York, Bronx, Kings (Brooklyn), New
    York (Manhattan), Northern Nassau, Northern Queens, Northern
    Westchester, Richmond (Staten Island), Rockland, Southern
    Nassau, Southern Queens, and Southern Westchester.

    * From noon EDT today through this evening

    * A slow moving frontal system will bring numerous showers and
    thunderstorms to the region this afternoon into this evening.

    * Any thunderstorms will have the potential to bring torrential
    downpours with rainfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour. These
    types of rainfall rates will cause urban and poor drainage
    flooding, with potential for flash flooding in areas affected by
    multiple successive thunderstorms. Additionally, rapid water
    level rises can occur on flashy small rivers and streams in
    basins affected by this activity.


    A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
    to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
    You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
    should flash flood warnings be issued.
