Today has been crazy forecast wise. Timing is throwing everything off; but steady to heavy rain will be likely overnight in most of New England. Further details in tomorrow’s blog about when it ends.
For the main show: Patriots vs. Steelers at Gillette Stadium. There is a break in the heavy precipitation for the most part in SNE, as evidenced by KBOX doppler radar, as precip moves NNE into NNE (north-northeast into Northern New England).
Precipitation will approach Foxboro for the second half; we know Brady and the Pats’ track record in bad weather! National mosaic radar specifically covering the Northeast and New England shows the scope of additional rain, moving NNE with the low.
A flash flood watch is in effect for all of Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island (excluding western CT and extreme western MA); until midnight in southeast MA, Cape Cod and the Islands as well as Rhode Island (excluding Northern and Western Providence County). Across CT, and western, central, and northeast MA and the Boston area plus northern and western Providence County, RI, the watch expires at 6 AM.
Have a safe evening and GO PATS!
