WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- A flash flood watch remains in effect for Westchester County from noon through late Friday night, according to the National Weather Service.

A slow-moving cold front will bring heavy rains to Westchester on Friday afternoon. Between 1 and 2 inches of rain are expected, with localized amounts of up to 3 inches.

The heaviest rains are expected to coincide with high tide on Long Island Sound, which could exacerbate coastal flooding.

Residents are reminded to pay attention of the forecast and be prepared to take action should flooding occur.
