A flash flood watch was issued Wednesday afternoon until Thursday morning for areas in northern CT including Hartford, Windham, Tolland and Litchfield counties. As the rain continues to add up, the threat for flooding will increase for at least the next day or two.

The National Weather Service Peachtree City office has been working with local and county emergency management officials to determine the magnitude of damage in Gilmer county from last weekend.

The National Weather Service issued warnings of strong to severe thunderstorms in various areas of Western and Central Massachusetts. The movement of any storms through midweek will be from south to north, which will make the "training" of storms possible, or the movement of heavy downpours over the same area repeatedly. "There may be heavy downpours with some of the showers which may cause localized flooding".

That means we have a better chance for rain each of the next few days.

"We've been so saturated lately and this activity is just going to exacerbate that this evening", said Kevin Witt, a weather service meteorologist.

If you've been outside at all this week, you'll agree it's felt a lot warmer than the actual air temperature - which has consistently been in the low to mid 80s - despite the pattern of light rain, heavy rain, fog, and occasional slivers of sunshine and blue skies. Showers and storms started shortly before noon.

A low temperature around 70 degrees is forecast for Wednesday night. As much as two to four inches of rain can fall in parts of the area during the next 48 hours. Rain chances will come down slightly by the end of the week. As we heat up a bit, showers and thunderstorms should becoming more abundant into the afternoon.

Saturday will be mostly cloudy and humid, with a chance of showers and thunderstorms and highs in the low to mid-80s, as the cold front crosses the region, forecasters said. Please be as descriptive as possible and also include the location (town/city) where the photo or video was taken.
