Even if you can’t imagine it, the Ida leftovers might deliver the most significant punch of all for some However, we are in for some heavy downpours over the next several hours, some of the most substantial rains that we’ve experienced this summer season. Assuming you’ve got a floor that’s already saturated (Boston has had 17 inches of rain in less than two months and has had the third wettest summer season on record), you’ve got a recipe for disaster now.

Although it is still tropical, the storm’s leftovers have begun to take on mid-latitude features, meaning it is no longer a wholly integrated swirl of tropical Ida’s rear has seen a surge of cold, dry air, which has aided in the formation of In the Appalachians, a stalled cold front will release Ida’s moisture.

The storm reaches its peak after midnight. There will be bouts of heavy rain from 11 pm until 7 am. When it rains, it will come down in buckets, sometimes at a rate of 1-to-3 inches per Storm drains will not be able to keep up with the Areas that get 3 inches or more in three hours are at risk of critical flash floods.

An emergency flash flood warning is in effect for parts of Massachusetts until Thursday AM. For the rest of the state, a flash flood watch remains in effect.

Basements prone to flooding and roadways prone to washing out might be inundated—residents in flood-prone areas or those who live in areas where heavy rainfalls may have a long night.

Most of our area won’t have to worry about severe thunderstorms, but the Mid-Atlantic states are at high risk for extreme weather. Even though this high-hazard area stretches offshore, it only touches the South Coast. Based on the current weather patterns and forecasts, there’s a chance of severe thunderstorms or spin-up twisters across the South Coast, Cape, and Islands in a single day.

Winds from this storm will mostly remain aloft (above ground), but there’s a high risk of 30-to-45 mph wind gusts over the east coast and southeast coastal portions of Massachusetts in a single day until early Thursday. This wind speed isn’t unusual along our shore, but considering the amount of rain that has soaked the ground, a few trees may fall, and a few power outages may occur.
