Severe Storms Expected Sunday Across New England


BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — According to the National Weather Service, some severe storms are possible across parts of Southern New England on Sunday.

After a sunny Independence Day across much of the region, NWS Boston said the "greatest likelihood of a severe storm" would be in northeastern Massachusetts starting Sunday afternoon into the evening.

The main threats are expected to be damaging winds and hail, but NWS said "there is a small chance of a tornado or two."

On Sunday, NWS Boston said the greatest risk for isolated severe storms on Sunday afternoon is in eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island into eastern Connecticut. It also said afternoon storms could also bring localized flooding of one to two inches.

NWS Boston predicted that strong winds over Ontario, Canada "will likely cause some turbulence to aircraft but will also tilt storms and separate updrafts/downdrafts, increasing storm severity."
