T’storm Potential Tonight and TuesdayMay 28th, 2012 at 10:01 pm by T.J. Del Santo under General Talk, Tony's Pinpoint Weather Blog
A warm front draped over S’rn New England coupled with an upper-level disturbance moving through the Great Lakes is sparking some showers and t’storms over parts of Massachusetts and New York. Some t’storms may work their way into our area overnight…especially north of a Providence-Plymouth line. Even if we don’t see any t’storms activity tonight, another chance arrives late tomorrow afternoon. This image shows where the t’storms could be late afternoon….
A cold front will be pushing into the Northeast. Ahead of it, more showers and t’storms will develop Tuesday afternoon. These storms could be quite strong in the afternoon with gusty winds and hail. If they hold together, they would arrive in our area late afternoon and evening on Tuesday. South-southwest winds ahead of these storms will likely knock the punch out of these storms, however. NONETHELESS, we need to keep a close eye on developments through the day.
