...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS AFTERNOON...
The Flash Flood Watch continues for
* Litchfield County in northwestern Connecticut.
* Through this afternoon
* Steady rain and milder temperatures are expected across the
region today. A period of briefly heavy rain may occur from mid-morning
into the early afternoon. The combination of about one to two
inches of rainfall, along with melting snow will allow for rises
on rivers and streams. Some rivers, including the Housatonic
River, may reach minor flood stage. In addition, the high
rainfall rates may allow for minor flooding of urban, poor
drainage and low lying areas. With the ground being frozen,
isolated flash flooding will be possible. In addition, isolated
ice jams cannot be ruled out, which may also result in flooding.

Information:
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.
