Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 2:46 AM EST Dec. 13, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch in effect from late tonight through late Saturday
night...

The National Weather Service in Boston/Norton has issued a

* Flood Watch for central and eastern Massachusetts as well as
Rhode Island.

* From late tonight through late Saturday night

* heavy rain late tonight through Saturday morning will result in
widespread 1.50 to 2.50 inches of rain. Localized higher amounts
of 3 to 3.50 inches are possible. This will bring the potential
for flooding, which will continue through the weekend on some
rivers as a result of runoff.

* There is the potential for some river and stream flooding
through the weekend if higher rainfall amounts are realized. In
addition, some urban street flooding is possible especially in
the typically prone locations late tonight into early Saturday
afternoon.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

Special Statement
Issued: 3:53 AM EST Dec. 13, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Spotty light freezing rain/freezing drizzle may result in
hazardous travel this afternoon...

Scattered light showers will develop across the region this
afternoon. However, temperatures may remain near or below freezing
in some locations into the afternoon. The greatest risk for this
is across portions of the Connecticut River valley and northern
Worcester Hills. This will bring the potential for spotty light
freezing rain/freezing drizzle this afternoon which may result in
roads becoming icy.

Any amount of icing that occurs will be very light. However, it
only takes a very small amount of freezing drizzle to make roads
and walkways icy. Motorists planning travel this afternoon and
into early this evening should be prepared for the potential of
locally hazardous travel.
