..The timeframe for this activity is between 2-8 PM Wednesday Afternoon and Evening. After 8 PM Wednesday Afternoon into late Thursday Morning additional convective showers and isolated non-severe thunderstorms with heavy downpours could cause a localized urban and poor drainage flooding issues with the greatest potential in the Connecticut, Rhode Island and Southeast Massachusetts. A general 0.25-1″ rainfall is possible but localized rainfall of 1-2″+ will be possible in areas that get heavier downpours..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation with Amateur Radio Call-Up Nets are possible today for any strong to isolated severe thunderstorm activity Wednesday Afternoon and Evening and for any localized flooding issues into late Thursday Morning.
