... Flood Watch in effect from 5 PM EDT this afternoon through
Thursday morning...

The National Weather Service in Taunton has issued a

* Flood Watch for a portion of southeastern Massachusetts...
including the following counties... Barnstable... Bristol...
Dukes... Nantucket and Plymouth.

* From 5 PM EDT this afternoon through tomorrow morning

* periods of heavy rain and embedded thunderstorms may lead to high
rainfall totals through tomorrow morning. The possibility of a
localized 3-6 inch amount is possible. Rainfall rates of 1-2
inches an hour are also possible... which could yield urban
flooding especially at typically prone locations.

* If these higher rainfall amounts are observed... localized
flooding is possible... particularly urban and street flooding
where drainage is poor. Low-lying area and basement flooding
also cannot be ruled out. Also... flashier small streams may
quickly rise.

* Note that the issuance of a watch suggests some
uncertainty... and the exact location of the heaviest rainfall
may ultimately remain offshore. However... given the potential
for this rain to fall in urbanized areas where impacts could be
high prompted the issuance of this watch.

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.
