A Flash Flood Watch has been issued from noon on Monday until 8am on Tuesday. It includes all of Rhode Island and Block Island, southeastern Massachusetts EXCLUDING the Cape, Nantucket, and Martha’s Vineyard.

Monday looks like a rainy day with scattered showers and downpours. Some embedded thunderstorms are also possible with anywhere from 1 to 2 inches of rain expected.

Flooding is possible as the ground is already saturated from Elsa’s rain. We’ll be watching the rivers closely as this next round of heavy rain moves through.

Here’s a look at your Monday morning commute, bring the umbrella! It’ll be a wet and muggy start with the rain becoming a bit heavier as the morning goes on.

Notice the yellows, oranges, and reds moving across the area by mid-morning. This indicates the potential for some heavier downpours and also a thunderstorm or two.

Some of our short range guidance clears the bulk of the rain out by later in the afternoon. However, a stray shower or two is still possible into the evening.
