Flood Threat For Rest Of Monday

Hard-core rain is falling, and has been falling for most of the day.

Subsequently, we're rolling with a Flood Watch and a Wind Advisory.

The flooding is from the rain, and the snowmelt. All that snow we had last winter has to go somewhere, and somewhere is downstream. Areas that got more snow than us will also send their snowmelt down river, although this threat is more off-Cape.

This will be more street/basement flooding than coastal flooding. No threat seems to face the shoreline. However, ferry service to the islands has been shut down today.

The rain should let up tonight at some point. Winds will peak at 25-35 mph, with higher (45-50 mph) gusts.

That's the 1 PM radar from NWS, which- fortunately for me- is public domain. That stormy area over Kentucky should exit the coast south of us, and we may only get clipped by the fringe later tonight. Some thuderstorms are possible.

Note that it is very icy in Northern Massachusetts and New Hamster, so drive cool if you have to break North for some reason.
