    ...FLOOD WATCH FROM LATE FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY EVENING...

    The National Weather Service in Boston/Norton has issued a

    * Flood Watch for northern Connecticut, as well as western and
    central Massachusetts.

    * From late Friday night through Saturday evening.

    * Widespread rain with embedded heavier showers is expected to
    develop late Friday night continuing through Saturday evening.

    * The longevity of the rainfall, possibly heavy at times, with
    amounts forecast around 1 to 2 inches poses the threat for
    urban and poor drainage flooding.

    * In addition, forecast rainfall will also exacerbate mainstem
    river flooding along the Connecticut River. It may also
    contribute to a few smaller streams throughout the watch area to
    reach minor flooding.

    * Those with interests in low lying or flood prone areas should
    continue to monitor the latest forecasts.

    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

    A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
    current forecasts.

    You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
    Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
    prepared to take action should flooding develop.
