In western Massachusetts, Berkshire county. In east central New York, Columbia, Dutchess and Rensselaer counties. In southern Vermont, Bennington, and Windham counties.

Through this evening

Heavy rain and thunderstorms yesterday resulted in 1.5 to 3 inches of rainfall. Additional rainfall and some isolated thunderstorms today may produce an additional inch of rainfall with heavy downpours possible during any thunderstorms. These areas are already saturated and are therefore more vulnerable to flooding.

High rainfall rates may result in localized flash flooding, especially in poor drainage and urban areas. Some smaller streams may quickly rise out of their banks.

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