...HEAVY RAINFALL MAY RESULT IN LOCALIZED FLOODING TONIGHT INTO
TUESDAY MORNING...

Periods of heavy showers and embedded thunderstorms will bring
localized heavy rainfall tonight into Tuesday morning. One period
of rain is expected to move through southern New England from
southwest to northeast this evening into the early morning hours,
then another area of locally heavy rainfall will accompany a cold
front Tuesday morning.

Rainfall amounts of 0.50 to 1.50 inches are expected. However,
localized amounts exceeding 2 inches are possible where heavy
showers or thunderstorms move over the same areas. This will
bring the potential for localized urban and poor drainage street
flooding which may impact the Tuesday morning commute. Where the
heaviest rain falls is uncertain and could occur anywhere in
southern New England.

Motorists should be prepared for periods of heavy rainfall and
localized poor drainage street flooding this evening into Tuesday
morning.
