Elizabeth Under Flood Warning Sunday

Strong Winds & Heavy Rain May Lead to Power Issues

Heavy rain and strong winds were forecast to spread from North Carolina into the Northeast on Sunday, with peak impacts of the storm beginning to intensify by Sunday night, the Weather Channel reported. There is also the potential for wind gusts to 50 miles per hour out of the southeast across the rest of the state. A southeast wind is very rare, but they have happened - during Irene for example when the Commonwealth experienced one of the worst power outages in history.

A wind advisory has been issued for Newton and surrounding counties, and for all of metro Atlanta.

Wind Damage: Power outages and tree damage likely, structural damage possible.

More than 800,000 homes and businesses lost electricity overnight throughout the Northeast, including about 300,000 customers in MA, 270,000 in New Hampshire, 142,000 in Rhode Island, 30,000 on New York's Long Island, 56,000 in ME and 35,000 in Vermont, according to local media. This amount of rain in a short time may cause flooding in poor drainage and urban areas, as well as minor river rises (particularly in central and northern NH.) The rain will taper off to scattered showers midday Monday, then ending in the evening.


Sunday's winds could break tree branches and down weaker trees, particularly those in saturated soils after recent rains.

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. A flash flood warning was called in Worcester County until 5:30 a.m. Monday. Highs will be only in the mid- to upper-40s.

Tuesday, however, is on track to be a mostly sunny day with a high near 54 and a low of 34.
