WESTCHESTER, N.Y. -- Heavy rainfall in southern Westchester has historically caused flooding problems in low-lying areas of the Hudson Valley where sections of major highways are located, causing major traffic problems.

The Saw Mill River, Sprain Brook, Bronx River, Hutchinson River and Taconic parkways are among the roadways that experience closures during flash flooding. This past weekend's closures forced motorists onto local Westchester roads with major traffic jams reported through Saturday evening.

According to the National Weather Service, some heavy rain is expected Monday through evening rush hour.
