Flooding Reported in Parts of New England

Expecting a widespread 0.25 to 0.50 inches of rain across interior New England

An area of low pressure brought torrential rain to areas of New England through Friday afternoon.

Flash flood watches have now been lifted for Cape Cod, but remain in effect for parts of Vermont.

Heavy flooding has been reported in areas of the Cape and Martha's Vineyard. At least one car was stuck in flood waters, and several roads were washed out or closed as a result of the high water.

Some areas on the Cape saw more than 4 inches of rain.

Overnight, the cloudy skies are expected to break as the rain shifts offshore.

We're expecting lows to dip back into the low to mid 60s south to near 60 degrees north. Warmth and humidity return for Saturday as southwest return flow strengthens across the region.

Showers and a few thunderstorms will develop throughout the day given instability in the atmosphere ahead of an approaching cold frontal passage. The biggest threats with any storms that develop will be torrential downpours and the risk of straight-line wind damage.

Highs crest into the low to mid-80s across the south, and mid-70s north. A cold front traverses across New England overnight Saturday, resulting in drier and cooler air working into the area for Sunday.

Highs on Sunday will reach near the climatological norm for this time of year in the near 80 degree range. Sunny skies prevail across most of New England on Sunday with the risk of showers across the interior.

Another cold front moves through on Monday, bringing a renewed threat of showers and thunderstorms to the region with highs reaching into the mid 80s south and mid 70s north.

Expect the cold front to stall over New England before pushing back north a warm front by Tuesday.
