Heavy rains predicted Monday into Tuesday as the remains of Tropical Storm Florence pass through area
Though Darien and the surrounding area will escape the bulk of the wrath of Tropical Storm Florence that is currently pummeling the Carolinas, the National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for souther Connecticut, northeast New Jersey and southeast New York beginning Monday and Tuesday.
Following an 80 degree and mostly sunny weekend, a heavy rainfall is predicted from Monday night into Tuesday night that the National Weather Service is calling the remains of the storm.
"There is increasing confidence in a swath of one to two plus inches of rain and local higher amounts of five or more inchese are also possible in its track," the National Weather Service says.
"Due to recent rain events, grounds are saturated and river and streams flows are running well above normal. If the heavy rain swath ends up over the local region, there will be potential for urban and poor drainage flooding as well as flooding along quick responding small rivers, streams, and creeks," the NWS says.
