Severe Weather Threat This EveningSeptember 8th, 2012 at 7:52 pm by T.J. Del Santo under General Talk, Tony's Pinpoint Weather Blog
As I type this, Live Pinpoint Doppler 12 Radar is scanning a line of strong to severe thunderstorms working through Northeast Connecticut. This line has a history of producing damaging wind gusts in western CT and western MA. Trees and wires are down in spots, in addition to some brief, but flooding rains.
This line appears to be weakening a bit, but still some damaging wind gusts are possible as it moves into especially northern Rhode Island between 8:30 and 9pm.
This weather system has spun up some tornadoes today, and while not likely, it is possible. However, the greates threat is straight-line winds and torrential rain.
The good news is, these storms will be gone by tomorrow and we are looking at some pleasant fallish weather for the rest of the week!
