Flood risk, drought relief in the northeast | State

Downpours will continue to drench parts of the northeastern United States, threatening localized flash flooding into early this week. Even areas that haven’t seen recent wet weather – including drought-prone areas – are expected to see rainfall as showers and thunderstorms become more widespread.

Wet areas of the Ohio Valley will see additional precipitation early in the week, but the main focus of the rain will shift eastward and focus over the inland Northeast as the storm moves through the region. Showers and storms will also hit coastal areas of the Mid-Atlantic and New England early in the week.
