— Rain – a lot of it – is on the way.

The Capital Region can expect up to two inches of rain by Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service, which has issued a Flash Flood Watch for the Mohawk Valley, Capital Region and points south.

According to National Weather Service meteorologist Neil Stuart, light rain will continue off-and-on through Tuesday afternoon into evening. The rain will become heavy at times, especially after midnight and into the morning.

“The rain will continue much of (Wednesday), including some rumbles of thunder,” Stuart said. “There could be some gusty winds and thunderstorms, but there shouldn’t be any damaging winds.

“It looks like a pretty good solid rain event over the next couple of days,” he continued. “In the Capital District area, (we can expect) at least an inch of rain, and perhaps as much as two inches rain.”

Temperatures will be in the 60s overnight and 70s Wednesday.
