Soaking rain will drench Northeast through Thursday night; flash flooding possible

An additional 1 to 3 inches of rain will fall from Pennsylvania to Vermont

The Northeast is feeling the wrath of the same storm system responsible for this week's severe weather in the South, as soaking rain will continue to drench the region through Thursday night.

An additional 1 to 2 inches will fall from Pennsylvania to Vermont, with the potential for 2 to 3 inches of rain from the Catskills and lower Hudson Valley of New York into the Poconos of northeastern Pennsylvania and parts of northern New Jersey.

Nearly saturated soils will lead to a low-end flash flood risk across upstate New York and northern New England.


Water levels in some rivers across the mid-Atlantic and Northeast could become elevated, potentially reaching minor flood stage in a few spots, but we do not expect widespread river flooding in the region.

To the south, a narrow corridor of marginal instability could lead to the development of some thunderstorms across Maryland, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

However, these storms are not expected to be severe. Lightning and heavy rain will be the main concerns.
