Torrential Rain in Central Massachusetts




    For the second night in a row, a huge downpour tagged central Massachusetts.

    Heavy rain created minor flooding around Worcester Friday, with rainfall rates of up to 2 inches per hour.

    Like Thursday night, this was not a thunderstorm, but an intense burst of rain that formed on a sea breeze boundary that working in from the coast.

    Things will settle down overnight, but we could see more heavy bursts of rain on Saturday night or Sunday in Central and Western Massachusetts.
