Good morning, Fort Greene and Clinton Hill.

Take an umbrella if you’re out in the nabe today, as the National Weather Service predicts more rain today, plus a flash flood warning until 10 p.m. tonight. Stay dry, locals!

If you do happen to be out in the rain and taking pictures, remember to upload them to our Flickr pool.

A cyclist was attacked by falling debris for the second time in two years on a Fort Greene bike path, The New York Daily News reported. Bike commuter Stephen Arthur was riding home when he was almost hit by falling groceries from University Towers on Ashland Place late Friday night. He had been hit in the head by a brick on the same bike path connecting the two sides of the Ingersoll Houses two years ago.The Greene Grape is selling the first batches of handmade soap it started making in spring, the store reported on its blog. If you’re in the market for some rosemary-scented farmstead soap, stop by and check out the bars. And for those of you who are interested in soap-making, just ask employees for a soap science lesson. Did you bring your dog to Brooklyn Flea this weekend? New York City Dog has photos on its blog of the pets they spotted at the weekly Fort Greene flea market.
