Rain and Flood Warnings in North Country: Beryl Remnants Move Away and Threaten Isolated Thunderstorms Ahead

Manchester, New Hampshire – The remnants of Tropical Storm Beryl are finally moving away from the North Country, bringing relief to residents after a period of heavy rain resulted in significant flooding. While there are still chances of rain and thunderstorms through the weekend, the weather is expected to be more isolated compared to the intense storms experienced earlier.

Reports indicate that many areas in the region received between 2 to 4 inches of rain in just 18 hours, causing widespread flooding and damage in the White Mountains and surrounding areas. Drivers are being urged to avoid flooded roadways as most flood-related fatalities occur in vehicles.

Flash flood warnings were issued on Wednesday evening but have since expired, with flood warnings and watches in effect for Coos and Grafton counties. Rivers and streams continue to swell as a result of the heavy rainfall, with specific warnings in place for the Connecticut River at Wells River.

Although a tornado watch and two warnings were issued in New Hampshire, no confirmed tornadoes have been reported so far. Any remaining showers or storms on Thursday are expected to be less intense and localized to the North Country. Higher temperatures in the 80s to near 90 are expected in southern zones, along with high humidity levels.

A heat advisory is in effect for parts of Hillsborough, Rockingham, and Strafford counties until 8 p.m. on Thursday, with drier conditions and more sunshine expected on Friday. Saturday may see slightly cooler temperatures in the 80s with a chance of showers or storms, while the heat and humidity are forecasted to persist into the following week.

Residents are advised to stay weather-aware and download local weather apps for updates and alerts. Storm coverage is also available through various platforms, including smart TVs and social media channels of the local meteorology team.
