Hurricane Arthur is churning towards New England. But forecasters are worried about an entirely different weather system hitting the area today.
National Weather Service meteorologist Glenn Field is hunkering down for a busy day. This afternoon and evening, Field says he’s watching a cold front that’s on track to bring severe weather and a couple of inches of rain to Rhode Island.
Hurricane Arthur has been downgraded from a category two to a category one storm as it makes its way toward New England. The National Weather Service is still expecting between three and five inches of rain to hit Rhode Island. A flash flood alert has been issued for the region and will be in place from noon until 2AM tomorrow morning.
