The National Weather Service in Albany has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for east central New York, western Massachusetts, southern Vermont and northwestern Connecticut. A widespread, one- to two-inch rainfall is expected through Thursday. Embedded bands of heavy rain will lead to locally higher amounts.
