With the likelihood of rain and the chance of heavy downpours, damaging wind gusts and thunderstorms this Friday and Saturday, a "hazardous weather outlook" has been issued for the Stoughton area, according to the National Weather Service.
The following information is from the National Weather Service in Taunton and pertains to all of Massachusetts except Berkshire County:
There will be an unsettled period of weather ahead of us Friday through Saturday evening. Thunderstorms with very heavy downpours and possibly damaging wind gusts will be the main threats.
Showers and thunderstorms will become more numerous during the course of Friday. The thunderstorms will be capable of producing intense rainfall, and localized areas of street flooding are likely. There is some concern that one or more bands of showers and thunderstorms could produce localized flash flooding especially if any such bands should set up over an urban area.
There is also a slight risk that a few thunderstorms could become severe and produce damaging wind gusts Friday afternoon and evening.
Numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected to persist Friday night. Localized street flooding is likely, and there remains a threat of localized flash flooding if one or more bands should persist over the same area for a few hours.
Still more showers and thunderstorms are likely Saturday with locally heavy downpours and strong wind gusts once again being threats. Thunderstorms should move offshore Saturday night and a period of dry weather is expected from Sunday into the first part of next week.
