Alert

Flash Flood Watch until 12:00PM Friday

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, Northern New London, Southern Fairfield, Southern Middlesex, 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 late tonight through Friday morning.

* As low pressure approaches from the Mid Atlantic region late tonight and passes over or just south of New York City and Long Island on Friday, rain could become heavy at times from late tonight into Friday morning. Rainfall of at least 3/4 to 1 inch is expected, with locally higher amounts up to 2 inches.

* There is still some uncertainty as to where the heaviest rainfall bands will set up, so not all places within the watch area may experience flooding. However, it will not take much additional rainfall to cause flooding in locations hard hit on Tuesday, and the heavier rainfall rates and total amounts could cause urban and highway flooding during the Friday morning rush. Minor small stream flooding is also possible, especially along small streams in northeast New Jersey.

* AFFECTED AREAS: NEW YORK (MANHATTAN) ... WESTERN ESSEX ... NORTHERN NEW LONDON ... WESTERN UNION ... ROCKLAND ... SOUTHERN MIDDLESEX ... NORTHERN WESTCHESTER ... RICHMOND (STATEN IS.) ... WESTERN BERGEN ... SOUTHERN QUEENS ... NORTHERN MIDDLESEX ... NORTHERN FAIRFIELD ... NORTHERN QUEENS ... EASTERN UNION ... EASTERN ESSEX ... SOUTHERN NEW HAVEN ... EASTERN PASSAIC ... SOUTHERN WESTCHESTER ... SOUTHERN FAIRFIELD ... BRONX ... KINGS (BROOKLYN) ... NORTHERN NASSAU ... NORTHERN NEW HAVEN ... WESTERN PASSAIC ... SOUTHERN NASSAU ... HUDSON ... EASTERN BERGEN
