...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM TUESDAY AFTERNOON
THROUGH LATE TUESDAY NIGHT...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Northwestern Connecticut, western Massachusetts and southern
  Vermont.

* From Tuesday afternoon through late Tuesday night

* Heavy rainfall is expected to develop along and immediately
  ahead of a slow moving cold front. A band of showers and
  thunderstorms containing very heavy rainfall will slowly move
  across the watch area Tuesday afternoon and evening. Rainfall
  rates may approach or exceed one inch per hour. There is a
  possibility that the band slows down over the watch area,
  resulting in some flash flooding of urban and poor drainage
  areas, especially where leaves clog storm drains.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
