Monday Night Discussion : Flood Watch for Wednesday

* FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT *
FROM WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH THURSDAY
* For : The Hudson Valley (excluding Greene & Columbia counties)
* From Wednesday afternoon through Thursday afternoon.
* The remnants of Ida will pass near the region Wednesday night through Thursday. Deep tropical moisture will interact with a
nearly stationary frontal boundary across the Middle Atlantic and Northeast to produce heavy rainfall late Wednesday through
Thursday morning. The rainfall should begin to taper off Thursday afternoon. A widespread 3 to 5 inches of rain is forecast with
locally higher amounts possible. This rainfall combined with wet antecedent conditions may lead to flash flooding. Flooding of fast
responding rivers and streams is possible, and flooding of main stem rivers cannot be ruled out.
