Rain will overspread western Massachusetts and northern
Connecticut between 3 and 6 pm this evening, reaching eastern
Massachusetts and Rhode Island between 6 and 9 pm this evening.

Bands of heavy rain and a few embedded thunderstorms are expected
to impact the region this evening into Tuesday morning. This will
bring the potential for some poor drainage street flooding. In
addition...more significant localized flooding is possible if the
heavy rain remains over the same areas for several hours.

If confidence increases in heavy rain, a flood watch might be
issued later today for portions of southern New England. At the
very least...motorists should be prepared for bands of heavy
rainfall and some poor drainage street flooding this evening into
Tuesday morning.
