Flash floods possible Monday in northwestern CT

The National Weather Service has issued a thunderstorm warning that will be in effect until 1:45 p.m. today.

The next chance for thunderstorms will be late Thursday night into Friday, said the weather service.

The NWS says "the main severe threat is strong damaging wind gusts, there isalso a low threat for damaging hail and a few weak tornadoes".

A flood warning remained in effect for Woodford and northeastern Tazewell counties, as well.

A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for low-lying and flood-prone areas of St Elizabeth, St James, Hanover and Westmoreland.

A flood watch is in effect for the entire Baltimore metro region from 3 to 7 p.m. Monday, extending along the I-95 corridor to Washington and Philadelphia.

It's a bright, sunny start to Monday in New Jersey, but that will change drastically within the next several hours. All GLOW region counties are included in the watch. These storms have the potential of damaging winds and of course risky lightning.

Storms will continue to produce heavy rain for at least an hour, until after 6 p.m.

Risky lightning also is expected, the service said, and tornadoes are a possibility.

On Tuesday, while the front will pass through CT in the morning, it may stall nearby, just offshore.

The seacoast will be the last to see the storms. Damage to trees and power lines was considered possible from the storm. Temperatures will rise into the 80s inland and top off in the upper-70s to near 80 degrees along the Shoreline.
