Soaking rain will break out over the mid-Atlantic on Sunday night and early Monday. From here, these downpours will spread widely over New York and New England on Monday through Monday night.

Widespread rainfall will be 1-2 inches over the Northeast, including the heart of the I-95 corridor. Local rainfall will exceed 3 inches. This rainfall will be enough for urban and small stream flooding.

In northern New England, especially in Maine, rainfall together with snowmelt and ice jams could extend the flood threat to rivers.
