National Weather Service Warns of Heavy Rain and Fog

The National Weather Service is advising residents of Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island to give themselves additional time for the morning commute on Wednesday.


The NWS said in a Hazardous Weather Statement that heavy rainfalls were expected overnight Tuesday into Wednesday that could cause flooding in areas with poor drainage. If roads have a lot of leaves clogging drainage systems the flooding could be even worse.


There is also a good chance of dense, patchy fog on Wednesday morning that could significantly restrict visibility.


“If having to travel be sure to give yourself extra time and if driving leave space between yourself and other drivers,” the NWS said in a statement.
