Heavy Rain Approaches Far Southern New England

Update 10:40 AM The WPC just issued a Mesoscale Precipitation Discussion regarding flash flood potential for the Boston-New York-Washington corridor, including much of MA/CT/RI, into Southern NH and Southwest Maine.

Good morning! More spare time in a place with a computer…we know what that means…with precip in New England, quick blog update. (I am using the WordPress for Android app to transfer RadarScope images to the computer.)

Some showers and thunderstorms are already in, and more approaching, Southeast Massachusetts. Very heavy rain is falling as noted by a Special Weather Statement and some isolated flooding is possible in addition to frequent lightning.

More rain is on the way, and there’s more beyond this particular image:

Another update coming later. Have a good rest of your morning!

Hello! I'm Nathan Coram, a 19 year old meteorology student and weather geek, and am going into my junior year at UMass Lowell as a meteorology major. I am the current Vice President of the UML American Meteorological Society Local Student Chapter. Prior to at UML, I attended the Dracut school system for my K-12 years, having graduated from Dracut High in 2018. I first got into weather with the December 2008 ice storm, which knocked out my electricity for 4 days. I had no idea how it could be raining and becoming ice immediately, and how rain can knock out power. (Now I do - warm layer aloft, cold air at surface). But I didn't really get into it until the heat of July 2010 and specifically a few severe weather events during that month, followed by the year 2011, which featured several high profile weather events. Since then I have had a growing interest, and am hoping to make it into the meteorology field, preferably with NOAA/NWS. But for now, I'm blogging here, helping with the UML Weather Center social media, and tweeting about the weather on my own account as well. Thanks for visiting!
