Flood Threat Shifts to Boston, Portland Wednesday

By Jordan Root, Meteorologist

August 13, 2014

Travel delays, cancellations and flash flooding will be a common theme across New England through Wednesday night as a potent system moves into the region.

Heavy rain and thunderstorms will target folks from New York to Maine, and into Quebec.

“Flash flooding will be the biggest threat with these showers and storms,” said AccuWeather Storm Warning Meteorologist Phil Warren.

Cities at risk for heavy rain and flooding include Burlington, Vermont; Hartford, Connecticut; Providence, Rhode Island; Springfield and Boston, Massachusetts; Concord, New Hampshire; Portland, Maine; Montreal, Quebec; and Quebec City, Quebec.

“Rainfall totals of 1 to 2 inches will be common across many locations,” added Warren. “Higher amounts of up to 4 inches will not be out of the question either for some areas.”
