SHREWSBURY, Mass. - Shrewsbury Weather Specialist James Arnold is warning there could be some torrential rain and flooding Tuesday.
"This looks to be a rather energetic system, and the National Weather Service will likely issue wind advisories for later Tuesday and Tuesday night," he said in an alert. "The rain will be showery in nature, and there will likely be some embedded downpours and possibly some scattered thunderstorms. I do not expect these to become severe at this time, but some torrential rain and strong winds are possible where they do occur."
The heavier rains are expected during Tuesday afternoon through the night, with the potential of 1 to 2 inches or rain where thunderstorms are present. According to Arnold, the rainfall could be enough to cause some urban street flooding, but no other other significant impacts are expected.
Expect temperatures to be in the high 60s to 70 degrees, and a warm night.
According to Arnold, this weather may be the result of an approaching cold front and low pressure area.
