Flash Flood Watch until 06:00AM Saturday

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, Southern New Haven, and Southern New London. 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, Orange, Putnam, Richmond (Staten Island), Rockland, Southern Nassau, Southern Queens, and Southern Westchester.

* From Friday evening through late Friday night

* Low pressure will approach the tri-state area on Friday and pass through during Friday night. This will bring a period of moderate to heavy rain to much of the area.

* Rainfall is expected to begin Friday afternoon into early evening and become moderate to heavy during the evening. The rain then becomes lighter and tapers off during the overnight hours. The heaviest rainfall is expected to occur in the evening. Rainfall amounts will generally average between 1 and 2 inches, however locally higher amounts will be possible. The combination of heavy rainfall and leaf clogged drainages will pose a threat for flash flooding across the watch area. In addition, quick water level rises are possible across small rivers, streams, and creeks, with flooding of adjacent areas.

* AFFECTED AREAS: NEW YORK (MANHATTAN) ... WESTERN ESSEX ... NORTHERN NEW LONDON ... WESTERN UNION ... ROCKLAND ... NORTHERN WESTCHESTER ... ORANGE ... SOUTHERN MIDDLESEX ...
