Rain combined with melting snow from the storm at the end of last week could cause minor flooding in streams Tuesday afternoon and evening, the National Weather Service said.
After the winter we've had so far, the warmer weather to start the week has been a welcome respite, but could cause flooding problems when rain passes through the area on Tuesday. The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a flood watch for Winchester and much of Eastern and Central Massachusetts, in effect from Tuesday afternoon until Wednesday morning.

"Poor drainage street flooding is likely Tuesday afternoon and evening, especially where snow is blocking catch basins," the NWS said in the food watch statement. "This could have an impact on…
