Flooding Fear: Beryl Remnants Moving Away, but North Country Still at Risk for Isolated Storms

Manchester, New Hampshire – Residents in the North Country are breathing a sigh of relief as the remnants of Tropical Storm Beryl finally move away. After enduring heavy rainfall that caused significant flooding, the region is now hopeful for better weather ahead.

Despite the storm system’s departure, there is still a chance of isolated rain and thunderstorms over the weekend, albeit less severe than what was experienced on Wednesday. The White Mountains and surrounding areas saw 2 to 4 inches of rain in just 18 hours, resulting in widespread flooding and damage.

Drivers are being cautioned to avoid flooded roadways, as the majority of flood-related deaths occur in vehicles. Flash flood warnings issued Wednesday evening have expired, giving way to flood warnings and watches in parts of Coos and Grafton counties. Rivers and streams are still swollen from the recent downpour.

Although a tornado watch and warnings were issued on Wednesday evening, it remains unclear if any tornadoes touched down. Nevertheless, reports of apparent wind damage have been noted in areas like Littleton. Showers and storms expected on Thursday will be isolated and less intense, mainly affecting the North Country.

Temperatures will remain warm and humid, with highs reaching the 80s to near 90 in southern regions. Additionally, a heat advisory is in place for portions of Hillsborough, Rockingham, and Strafford counties until 8 p.m. Friday is projected to be drier with increased sunshine, while Saturday may see cooler temperatures in the 80s with a chance of showers or storms.

Residents are urged to stay informed about weather updates by downloading the WMUR app and enabling push notifications. On social media, the Storm Watch 9 team provides real-time updates and alerts to help the community stay prepared for any upcoming weather events.
