Flood Watch Takes Effect Monday Morning For Tri-State Area
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A combination of factors, including warmer temperatures, rain and snow melt could result in flooding for the Tri-State area.
A flood watch is in effect from Monday morning through late Monday night for much of the area. In addition, a freezing rain advisory takes effect at 2 a.m. Monday and will last until 8 a.m. for Orange, Putnam and western Passaic counties.
Sunday night into Monday is expected to be mostly cloudy with occasional rain and drizzle, according to AccuWeather. Some suburbs north and west of New York City could see temperatures around the freezing mark, which could cause the drizzle to freeze on some surfaces.
On Monday, increased winds with periods of rain are predicted and even a thunderstorm is possible in some spots. Monday’s rain could also cause additional issues with flooding, especially in poor drainage areas. The high temperature will be 58 degrees.
Monday night will be windy and turn colder with a low temperature of 34 degrees.
