localized urban flash flooding on Friday 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: It remains uncertain if the heavy rainfall and
localized urban flash flood threat will reach Rhode
Island/Southeast MA or stay south of our region. However, the
threat was high enough to warrant a Flash Flood Watch.
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.
