Yet another in a series of severe weather and flash flood events could potentially occur during Thursday Afternoon and Evening. The exact timing is a bit uncertain. This has the potential to be a particularly robust severe weather event if certain mesoscale parameters line up. Those key factors include:
1.) What amount of cloud cover debris occurs from ongoing convection west of New England overnight into Thursday Morning. If more heating can occur than currently expected, it would raise the potential for potent and numerous severe thunderstorms in the coverage area.
2.) Timing of any thunderstorm development near or shortly after the time of peak heating
