…A few strong to severe thunderstorms are possible between 3 PM

and 9 PM this evening…

A few strong to severe thunderstorms are possible between 3 PM and

9 PM this evening. The main potential for this activity is to the

northwest of a Boston to Providence line. However…the highest

risk exists across western Massachusetts and northern Connecticut.

The main risk with any strong to severe thunderstorm will be

isolated damaging wind gusts and hail to the size of quarters.

Dangerous cloud to ground lightning and locally heavy rainfall may

result in brief nuisance poor drainage street flooding.

Those with outdoor plans later this afternoon and evening should

stay in contact with the latest weather information and keep a

close eye to sky. Remember…if you hear thunder you are close

enough to get struck by lightning so seek an indoor shelter

immediately.

22News Storm Team Declares Today a Severe Weather Alert Day

Damaging winds and large hail are the main threats.
