Flash flood warning issued for Friday on Staten Island

Warm weather and rain on the way

Up to 2 inches of precipitation is possible through Saturday night, with locally higher amounts possible. Heavy rain returns Friday evening, becoming heaviest Friday night.

The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch for much of Western and central MA and northern CT beginning at 2 a.m. Saturday morning and running through 8 p.m. Saturday evening.

The National Weather Service previously issued a coastal flood statement for Staten Island that is in effect from 7 p.m.to 10 p.m. tonight. Instead, the watch expired as scheduled.

A Flash Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring.

- Heavy rain is coming to the tristate area overnight and into the weekend.

Flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas is likely, as well as along some of the regional streams and creeks.

Flash flooding remained a potential concern because water runoff from a storm doesn't just shut off once the rain stops, Kruzdlo said. There's a chance for some pop-up showers after 11 a.m.
