Hello to all…

..Severe Weather Potential is low but flooding/flash flooding from tropical downpours and strong thunderstorms is a concern across portions of Southern New England this Monday Afternoon and Evening particularly if areas that received heavy rainfall Friday through Sunday receive additional rainfall today..
..A Flood Watch is in effect through late Monday Night for Northern Connecticut, Rhode Island, Central and Eastern Massachusetts except for Cape Cod and the Islands for 1.5-3″ of rainfall causing flooding of urban and poor drainage areas and possibly small rivers and streams particularly if heavy rain lines up over areas affected by previous rainfall over the last 3 days. Heaviest rainfall is expected between 2-8 PM Monday and could affect the evening commute..
..Post Severe Weather Coordination Message on Friday 9/8/23 severe weather as well as post severe weather/flood messages on weekend events will be posted late tonight or Tuesday Morning.
