The entire state of Massachusetts is under a flash flood watch and wind advisory

People wearing rain ponchos make their way through the wind and rain in Cambridge this past summer.

Massachusetts is under a flash flood watch and wind advisory as forecasters eye a band of heavy showers and isolated thunderstorms moving across New England starting this evening and lasting into Wednesday.

Eastern Massachusetts could see 3 to 4 inches of rain with the highest totals across southeastern Massachusetts and Cape Cod, according to meteorologist Alan Dunham with the National Weather Service in Taunton.

Localized flash flooding and wind gusts of 40 to 50 miles per hour with a few gusts up to 60 miles per hour are possible, the service warned.

“Wednesday [brings] continued showers mainly in the morning, but I can’t rule them out for the afternoon,” Dunham said.


Rhode Island, southern Vermont, and parts of Connecticut are also impacted by the watches.
