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.
