Watching Flooding Today

We’ve got an array of warnings, advisories and watches up across Connecticut, and it’s all due to flooding! Over 4 inches of rain has fallen in some spots, others in the state have seen 2-3″. Regardless, this morning we had a bunch of areas we were watching. Here are a few:

  • Park River in Hartford
  • Yantic River in Norwich
  • Housatonic River at the Stevenson Dam and in Gaylordsville.
  • Mt. Hope River in Ashford
  • Willimantic River in Coventry
There are more to this list!

I’ve also seen basement flooding for some, and yard soaked too! The good news is that today won’t feature much rain, and the next heavier round won’t be as bad as the last.  

This rain should pick up during the evening and last overnight.

The bad news is that at the tail end of this rain, we could see some sleet, freezing rain, and snow especially at the high elevations in Northwestern Connecticut. The National Weather Service has a winter weather advisory up there. While I don’t think it will be major, it’s definitely something to watch closely tonight.

After that, rain finishes tomorrow morning with a leftover shower or two tomorrow. Some sunshine too.  Then we get above average with the greatest chances for rain happening on Thursday (mostly at the shore as of now), and on next Saturday!
