A Flash Flood Watch  has been issued, and will go into effect today at 12 PM, and stay in effect until 6 AM on Wednesday, July 16th in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Locals and commuters should be advised alert will also be in effect in numerous other coastal regions of the tri-state area.

The National Weather Service is predicting multiple showers and thunderstorms to plague the area, followed by a cold front this afternoon. These conditions, combined with the current humidity will produce torrential downpours, amassing in 2 to 3 inches total rainfall.

The fast falling heavy rains may potentially create flash flooding in coastal areas, low lying areas, as well as roadways with poor drainage. Before you get ready to hit the road, be sure to visit LongIsland.com's Traffic Camera Center, where you can view local road conditions in real time.
