...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM THURSDAY MORNING THROUGH
THURSDAY AFTERNOON...

The National Weather Service in Albany has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for Litchfield County.

* From Thursday morning through Thursday afternoon

* Steady rain and milder temperatures are expected across the
region on Thursday. The rain may be locally moderate to heavy at
times. The combination of about one to two inches of rainfall,
along with melting snow will allow for rises on rivers and
streams. Some rivers, including the Housatonic River, may reach
minor flood stage. In addition, the high rainfall rates may
allow for minor flooding of urban, poor drainage and low lying
areas. With the ground being frozen, flash flooding will be
possible. In addition, isolated ice jams cannot be ruled out on
rivers as well, which may also result in flooding.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
