A storm system responsible for severe weather across the Plains over the past week will advance across the Northeast on Monday with areas of drenching rain and locally severe storms.
Steady rain will impact New England through Monday night ahead of a warm front and cold front combination. Thunderstorms will also develop across portions of the region on Monday afternoon, some of which could become severe.
According to Accuweather.com meteorologist Ben Noll, “A flood risk exists from eastern Pennsylvania into New Jersey and southern New England, including New York City.”
“Heavy rains can lead to ponding of water on roadways and flooding on streets and in areas of poor drainage,” he added.
