When it rains, it pours! After a 3″-5″ rainfall deficit since March, Mother Nature is playing catch up.
Thursday some areas picked up half a month’s worth of rain in just a few hours. Flash flood warnings, watches and advisories were posted for various Connecticut Counties. There is no point in getting into which alert your home is in because really everyone is in the same boat overnight. Bottom line, watch for flooding of poor drainage areas, low lying areas, small streams and creeks in any of the Thursday night downpours. If your basement typically floods, keep an eye on it the next few days.
Off and on showers and downpours will continue all the way through at least Sunday morning. The humidity will be moving out, getting replaced with a chilly air mass. On Saturday and Sunday, temperatures will get stuck in the 50s! Monday looks like the best day of the long weekend with sunshine returning.
