Post-Tropical Cyclone Bill continues to move through the eastern third of the country and is leaving a drenched countryside in its wake.

The storm has a history of producing flooding rain across north Texas and into south-central Oklahoma.

"Any place along the path of Bill to the Atlantic Coast will be at risk for street flooding, rapid rises along small streams, travel delays and disruptions to outdoor activities," AccuWeather Chief Meteorologist Elliot Abrams said.

After drenching the Ohio Valley into the mid-Atlantic early on Sunday, remnants of Bill will shift slightly north and bring a wet end to the weekend for New England.


Showers and embedded weak thunderstorms look to be widespread across the entirety of the region Sunday, so an umbrella, rain boots and a rain coat will be good items to have on hand when you leave the house.

Residents who have outdoor plans for Father's Day will want to stay in touch with MinuteCast® to monitor the start and end times of the rain.

Urban flooding and travel disruptions are a definite possibility on Sunday for New York City, Hartford, Boston and Portland. Torrential downpours will cause poor visibility for motorists and low ceilings for air travel. In urban areas, this is the type of rainfall that can collect in underpasses, on lawns and in poor drainage areas along highways.

If you have travel plans, be sure to stay in touch with the forecast along your route and check in with your airline for any delays or cancellations.
