DEMHS: Current Weather Update

STATUS OF THE STATE EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTER MONITORING

Flash Flood Warnings are currently in effect for Northern Hartford County.  At 1:45 PM radar showed an area of moderate to heavy rainfall currently over Northern Hartford county.  Rainfall rates up to 2 inches per hour may result in minor to moderate (in pockets) urban flooding during the next few hours in the warning area.   The recent dry weather is expected to reduce the chances of river and stream flooding.  Total rainfall today has generally ranged from 1 3 inches across the state with totals up to 6 inches in parts of South Central Connecticut. 

 

Towns in the warning area are advised to continue to closely monitor the heavy rainfall and to report any significant urban flooding to your DEMHS Regional Office as conditions permit.  Continued cloud cover has diminished the risk of severe weather somewhat.  However, the NOAA Storms Prediction Center is still forecasting that any severe thunderstorms that develop will have a 5% chance of containing strong winds and a 2% chance of containing an isolated tornado for Southeastern CT.


The Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security will continue to monitor the latest conditions, however this will be the final update unless additional warnings are issued.
