The severe weather was caused by a slow-moving cold front bringing heavy rain and thunderstorms on Wednesday night.

Localized flooding remains a risk, as pockets of heavy rain move eastwards throughout the day. Recently, the severely affected areas have been witnessing heavy rain since early morning. Rainfall on already saturated soil is not helping, and there is still more to come.

Western New England will begin to dry out as the front pushes through Wednesday evening, bringing heavy rain across eastern Maine. Rainfall amounts may range from one to four inches under heavy rainfall.

While Thursday and Friday bring drier air and comfortable afternoons, we’ll be busy preparing for Hurricane Lee to approach our coasts.

High waves, beach erosion, rip currents and coastal flooding may begin late Friday as winds strengthen. Depending on Hurricane Lee’s path, if it approaches along the outer cape, wind gusts could reach 80 mph, however, wind gusts of up to 60 mph could cause damage and loss of power across the Southeast.

Choppy beaches may remain through Sunday. Drier air takes over the second half of the weekend and temperatures stay in the 70s through the rest of the weekend.
