...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM TUESDAY EVENING THROUGH
WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON...

The National Weather Service in Taunton has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for Barnstable County and Nantucket.

* From Tuesday evening through Wednesday afternoon

* Jose, currently sitting well south of Nantucket will shift
  north, then eastward through Wednesday. This will bring bands of
  heavy rain mainly to Nantucket and Cape Cod as it makes its
  closest pass late tomorrow into early Wednesday. Continued bands
  of heavy rain could lead to localized flash flooding,
  exacerbated by the inability of each high tide cycle to fully
  drain. As much as 3 to 6 inches of rainfall is expected.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.
