The weather service said via phone and in a separate forecast advisory that the flood watch for parts of Massachusetts was also cancelled.'The remainder of the Flash Flood Watch has been dropped,' the advisory said at 1:50 p.m. 'Widespread light rain to occasionally moderate rain still falling across the region, but mid level dry air moving in from the northeast has resulted in the intensity weakening over the past few hours.'National Weather Service meteorologist Torry Gaucher said rainfall rates on Tuesday were nowhere close to Monday's deluge that flooded parts of Interstate 95 in Providence and left Cranston as the place where the most rain fell.
