...Severe Thunderstorms Possible Tonight...

After a day of record heat with highs in the 90s in many
locations, there may be a few severe thunderstorms in southern
New England tonight.

Storms were developing in upstate New York late this afternoon,
and are expected to reach northern Connecticut as well as western
and central Massachusetts, between 8 pm and 10 pm. Some of these
storms may produce damaging winds and hail.

The storms should weaken as they head farther east, into Rhode
Island and eastern Massachusetts closer to midnight, where the
threat of severe weather is much lower.

Stay tuned to your local TV and radio stations, NOAA Weather
Radio, or weather.gov for the latest information.
