A few strong to severe thunderstorms are possible this afternoon and into the evening.
According to the National Weather Service, a Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for a good part of New England.
The Watch is in effect until 10:00 p.m. tonight.
Damaging wind gusts are the primary threat but large hail is also possible. The greatest risk for severe weather may end up south of the Mass Pike and especially across eastern Connecticut, Rhode Island and southeast Massachusetts.
