The National Weather Service in Boston/Norton has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of northern Connecticut,
  Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.

* Until 11 PM EDT this evening.

* Numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop
  during the mid to late afternoon hours and continue into the
  evening. The stronger thunderstorms will be capable of producing
  torrential rainfall with localized rainfall amounts exceeding 2
  inches in just an hour. This will result in the potential for
  localized flash flooding, particularly if this were to occur in
  an urban center.


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. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
