..Line of strong to severe thunderstorms in Eastern New York will likely impact Western New England with isolated to scattered strong to severe thunderstorms with strong to damaging winds, hail. frequent lightning and heavy rainfall as the main threats after 6 PM EDT. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch in effect through Midnight EDT Friday for Franklin, Hampshire, Hamdpen Counties of Massachusetts and Hartford and Tolland Counties of Northern Connecticut..
..Some isolated strong to severe thunderstorms are also possible in Eastern New England but the threat here maybe less given the loss of daytime heating as the line approaches..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the severe weather potential tonight given the short fused nature of this event. This will be the only coordination message as we shift into operations mode. Below is the SPC Severe Thunderstorm Watch statement, NWS Boston/Norton Severe Thunderstorm Watch County Outline, NWS Boston/Norton Hazardous Weather Outlook, Enhanced Hazardous Weather Outlook and SPC Day-1 Convective Outlook..
