A flash flood watch is in effect for Long Island as another storm works its way to the region, possibly bringing widespread rain until Tuesday morning.

An approaching warm front Monday could bring “widespread moderate to heavy rainfall,” according to a statement on the Upton-based National Weather Service website. The flood watch is in effect from noon Monday through Tuesday morning.

The island could see up to 2 inches of rain throughout the day, which could result in flooding of small streams and rivers along with urban flooding, meteorologists said.

“Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop,” the NWS said.

The potential for nasty weather comes just three days after 5 inches of rain was dumped on the island during a storm that flooded local roads and highways.
