Mother Nature, it seems, will try to make up for the extremely dry start to the year with "torrential rain" starting Sunday evening and continuing into Monday.
At 6 p.m. Saturday, The Boston Channel was predicting that the rain will begin in the Burlington area around 2 p.m. Sunday and continue with the heaviest rainfall through Monday morning.
And the rain forecast has led the National Weather Service to issue a flood watch for Wayland and much of Southern New England.
According to the flood watch, heavy rainfall to the tune of 2 to 4 inches is expected to fall Sunday night into Monday. While flooding of major rivers is unlikely, small streams and areas with poor drainage have prompted the watch.
A flood watch means that there is potential for flooding based on current forecasts.
