FIRST ALERT WEATHER WARNING: Heavy rains, wind could pose dangerous conditions for most parts of NH

CONCORD – Heavy rains and winds are posing a threat for potentially hazardous weather over the course of this week and possibly into the weekend.

Dangerous weather outlooks are likely to affect central, northern and southern New Hampshire.

Rain is expected to begin Tuesday evening with periods of heavy rain Tuesday night to Wednesday.

In one possible model, more than 6 inches of rain could be expected in Manchester, Portsmouth and Rochester.

Flood warning are in effect for Belknap County, Cheshire County, Merrimack County and Sullivan County.

Strong winds will also affect the seas. There is a coastal flood watch in effect from Wednesday morning through Thursday afternoon in Rockingham County. The National Weather Service has reported a Flood Watch in effect late Tuesday night through Thursday morning.

Those near the coast are urged to be prepared for flooding, especially with high tides around 1 p.m. Wednesday and 2 p.m. Thursday.

Meteorologist Joe Joyce is also tracking the Tropical Storm Joaquin that has formed off the coast of Florida. We are likely to feel the impacts of the storm.
