Staying dry might be a challenge in Massachusetts on Tuesday.
The National Weather Service says a warm front arriving in the region will bring “soaking heavy rain” to the Bay State, which could cause some street flooding.
“A widespread 1-2 inch rainfall is expected with possibly up to 3 inches in spots,” meteorologists said.

The showers are predicted to start mainly after noon in Boston and continue largely before 10 p.m., according to the service’s seven-day forecast for the city.
Forecasters said the steady rain “should wind down” later Tuesday, but the precipitation won’t end there.
“Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms will be possible through the night with locally heavy downpours,” the service said.
On Wednesday, “summer-like warmth and humidity” are forecast to return along with continued scattered showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening.
