...Record Heat This Afternoon & Possibly A Few Strong Storms
Western and Northern Massachusetts 6 pm to 11 pm...

High temperatures will soar into the mid and upper 90s this
afternoon across northern portions of Connecticut...Rhode Island
and much of Massachusetts away from the south coast. This includes
the Greater Boston area.  These temperatures will break record
highs for the day.

In addition strong thunderstorms will exit New York state later
today and then enter western Massachusetts between 6 pm and 8 pm.
A few of these storms may contain strong winds and possibly large
hail. These storms will then move across northern Massachusetts
this evening especially the along the Vermont/New Hampshire and
Massachusetts border, then exiting offshore between 11 pm and
midnight. The threat for strong storms farther south into
Connecticut...Rhode Island and southeast Massachusetts this
evening is much lower.
