...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 8 AM EDT THIS MORNING
THROUGH THIS AFTERNOON...
The Flash Flood Watch continues for
* Portions of southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island,
including the following areas, in southeastern Massachusetts,
Barnstable, Bristol, and Plymouth. In Rhode Island, Bristol,
Kent, Newport, Providence, and Washington.
* From 8 AM EDT this morning through this afternoon.
* There is the potential for a period of torrential rain and
localized urban flash flooding this morning across Rhode Island
and Southeast MA. The greatest risk for this will occur near
the south coast, where localized rainfall rates of 1 to 2 inches
per hour will be possible.
* Uncertainty: This scenario is currently unfolding. However,
latest trends suggest pockets of torrential rain could move
through the areas where the Flash Flood Watch currently resides.
Therefore, will maintain the watch until a better handle on the
bands of heavy rain are fully established later this morning. If
anything, the risk is delayed now toward mid morning.
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
