    As of this Monday early-evening post, Southern New England is the only area in a Flood Watch, but that probably will change as we near Tuesday afternoon and night's incoming rain.  Though not a great deal of rain is anticipated - .50" to 1.0" - this new water combined with continuing snowmelt may be just enough to drive some small streams out of their banks, though no widespread or significant flooding is expected.  Of course, as always, caution is urged when driving near big puddles or areas of standing water to avoid hydroplaning.  There are also about four rivers that I think bear watching in particular...below you'll see those river and the percent chance of each of them reaching minor flood stage.  Again - these percentages are just for the river barely reaching minor flood stage, and even the greatest chance is below fifty percent.
