Heightened Risk Of Floods This Weekend, With More Rain On The Way

The National Weather Service in Shreveport said development will be mainly along a almost stationary boundary located roughly near the Interstate 20 corridor.

"A few strong thunderstorms may develop during the afternoon and evening hours across interior southern New England", meteorologists with the National Weather Service said in a statement.

The first half of the work week is expected to be dry, but scattered showers and thunderstorms are forecast to return to the region for Thursday and Friday. "Then tomorrow, still pretty warm and humid, with highs in the upper 80s".

Such storms could bring heavy rain, winds 40 to 60 miles per hour and hail up to an inch in diameter.

The chance of showers and thunderstorms continues into Saturday night, mainly after 10 p.m. Temperatures will dip to around 69, the weather service says.

The stormy weather is expected to hit Saturday afternoon and stick around through Saturday night.

Rain chances will decrease by Sunday, and especially into Monday.

Its local forecast puts the high at 88 degrees and the chance of rain at 80 percent, with possibility of up to three-quarters of an inch of rain.

Independence Day celebrations on Tuesday, however, will feature mostly sunny, clear conditions with a high near 75.
