...BANDS OF HEAVY RAIN LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND INTO THE EVENING
RUSH HOUR MAY RESULT IN LOCALIZED STREET FLOODING...

WIDESPREAD RAIN WAS RAPIDLY OVERSPREADING THE REGION AS OF LATE
THIS MORNING. THE RAIN WILL BECOME HEAVY AT TIMES BY LATE THIS
AFTERNOON AND INTO THE FIRST PART OF THE EVENING...INCLUDING THE
BOSTON TO PROVIDENCE CORRIDOR. THE HEAVIEST RAIN IS EXPECTED TO
OCCUR SOUTH OF THE MASSACHUSETTS TURNPIKE AND ESPECIALLY NEAR THE
SOUTH COAST, WHERE AN EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORM OR TWO IS POSSIBLE.
LOCALIZED STREET FLOODING IS CERTAINLY A CONCERN...PARTICULARLY IN
URBANIZED AREAS.

MOTORISTS PLANNING TRAVEL LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND INTO THIS
EVENING SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR HEAVY RAIN AND LOCALIZED STREET
FLOODING. REMEMBER...DO NOT DRIVE THROUGH FLOODED ROADWAYS AND
ALLOW EXTRA TRAVEL TIME TO REACH YOUR DESTINATION.
