Serious Flash Flooding Continues

A serious flash flood event has developed in eastern Connecticut from an incredible zone of rain that has basically stalled over the last few hours. While flash flooding can be very difficult to forecast ahead of time – I’m very surprised by this. The ingredients didn’t seem there this morning and computer guidance showed very little rainfall (in fact not even any measurable!!!) in this region for the afternoon.
