...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 5 PM EDT THIS
AFTERNOON THROUGH FRIDAY AFTERNOON...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* A portion of southeastern Massachusetts, mainly Barnstable,
  Dukes, and Nantucket.

* From 5 PM EDT this afternoon through Friday afternoon

* An approaching cold front moves through Southern New England
  tonight. The front will draw upon tropical moisture from
  Tropical Storm Michael, creating local downpours as it moves
  through. The remnants of Hurricane Michael will then pass
  south of Nantucket Friday morning, maintaining a chance of
  showers through the afternoon.

* Moderate to heavy rainfall is anticipated averaging around 3
  to 5 inches for the area with locally heavier amounts
  especially with any thunderstorm activity as high as 4 to 6
  inches.

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.
