Hello to all…

..Isolated Strong to Severe Thunderstorms are possible Tuesday Afternoon into early evening across Western Massachusetts and Northwest Connecticut to the west of a backdoor cold front where western areas will remain warm and muggy and to the east of the backdoor cold front conditions are cooler and more stable. The position of this front and the ability for thunderstorms to form and break a cap to tap into favorable instability and shear profiles will be the key factors in isolated strong to severe thunderstorm coverage in Western New England..
..The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has placed portions of Western Massachusetts and Northwest Connecticut in a marginal risk for severe weather with the severe weather potential timeframe in the Tuesday mid to late afternoon into early evening..
