Flash Flood Watch

Expires 6:00 PM EST on January 24, 2019
Statement as of 2:29 PM EST on January 23, 2019

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect from Thursday morning
through Thursday afternoon...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of northwestern Connecticut, including the following
areas, northern Litchfield and southern Litchfield.

* From Thursday morning through Thursday afternoon

* steady rain and milder temperatures are expected across the
region on Thursday. A period of 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,
flash flooding will be possible. In addition, isolated ice jams
cannot be ruled out on rivers as well, which may also result in
flooding.


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.
