The National Weather Service in Blacksburg has expanded the Flash Flood Watch to include portions of north central North Carolina and southern Virginia.

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

Forecasters say strong to severe thunderstorms remain possible as a cold front settles across the NY metro area, with the strongest storms expected to hit between 3 a.m. and noon Monday.

Weather officials say the greatest risk for flooding will be along windward slopes, though all areas could experience flooding.

Falling in behind the rain is a cold front from the north which will drop temperatures and led to snow in the higher elevations Monday. Forecasters warned that unsafe flash flooding is still possible. That means there is the potential for flash flooding which can be life-threatening. Flood waters will also threaten some homes and businesses.

Thunderstorms are expected to arrive just before or during the Monday morning commute according to the NWS. According to the NWS, flash flooding is extremely unsafe.

Many areas of the island were without power overnight due to lightning.

Another low pressure system is expected to approach the ara later Wednesday and last into Thursday evening, bringing another round of rain to the region.
