From Meteorologist Steve Glazier -

Heavy rain will slowly push east across the Northeast and Quebec Wednesday, squeezing out a lot of water across the area.

Rain will continue to get heavier/steadier as Wednesday progresses, heaviest during the midday and afternoon hours for most of Vermont and New Hampshire. New York will see the heaviest rain Wednesday morning, trending drier and ending by the late afternoon.

Rainfall should last about 10-12 hours and result in about 1-2 inches of rainfall for many of us. However there will be isolated downpours/thunderstorms that will develop this afternoon in southern VT/NH and that will result in localized higher amounts of rain. Thus the National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for the potential of flash flooding from heavy rainfall. The areas at highest risk of this will be southeast Vermont and New Hampshire.
