For anyone who hasn’t already heard, we’re expecting isolated to scattered strong to severe thunderstorms over Western Massachusetts and North-Central Connecticut this afternoon and evening. Strong to damaging winds, frequent lightning and heavy rainfall, and flash flooding are the primary threats. Hail and perhaps even an isolated brief tornado are secondary threats. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect from Monday afternoon through late Monday night for Franklin, Hampshire, Hampden, Worcester and Northern Middlesex Counties of Western and Central Massachusetts and Hartford and Tolland Counties of Northern Connecticut.
I’m all set with my camera, umbrella, and rain jacket. Are you prepared?
