This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for northwestern Connecticut, Western Massachusetts, east central New York, eastern New York and southern Vermont.
Tuesday through Sunday: Periods of heavy rain may cause localized flooding of urban, low-lying, poor-drainage areas and small creeks on Tuesday. Some additional showers may also cause localized urban and low lying flooding on Wednesday as well, especially for locations that saw heavy rain on Tuesday.
Strong southeast winds are possible in favored locations on Tuesday, such as the Berkshires, as well as the eastern Catskills and southern Adirondacks. This may result in a few downed tree limbs, which may cause some isolated power outages.
Thunderstorms are possible on Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday evening along or ahead of a cold front, some of which may produce strong to damaging wind gusts. The Storm Prediction Center has placed all eastern New York and adjacent western New England within a Slight Risk for severe thunderstorms for Wednesday.
