While the area has already been soaked with anywhere from less than around an inch across the NE corner of our region, to as much as 2.75 inches across the Southern Hudson Valley. More rounds of heavy rain are getting poised to move into our region through the overnight into Thursday morning. Latest guidance has some scattered rain lingering across our region till about 9-11AM. Another .75-1.50 inches of rain will fall across the region through the overnight into tomorrow. While a look at current flood gauges show sharp rises across most regional creeks and rivers they are all still forecasted to remain within their banks. The one exception to that rule may be the Hudson River below Poughkeepsie expected to reach minor flood stage stage at around midnight (see below image). Any river or stream forecast can be suddenly and unpredictably broken by any slow moving or persistent rain bands that drop locally heavy rainfall, therefore, these river gauge forecasts should always be used as a guide and not the rule. More scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms may try to develop on Thursday afternoon as the region is pumped with a warm southern flow that will drive temps passed 70 degrees by afternoon. Friday continues to look like our opportunity to dry out a bit, and while the weekend appears mostly dry, we can’t rule out an ongoing threat of scattered showers. This is all the result of the same storm system that is responsible for epic, record breaking flooding across parts of the South overnight with some regions seeing nearly twenty inches of rain in twenty-four hours. Please stay alert for any overnight flood warnings or advisories and use caution on roadway flooding that likely exists across the region. Don’t forget to check out the new interactive HVW radar to track the rainfall as it continues to track through the region, you can toggle the flood watches and advisories over the radar to see the wide reaching impacts of this storm system.
