______________________________________________________
Showers and thunderstorms have already broken out across much of Southern New England.  A storm moving into Worcester county at the moment is capable of producing small hail and gusty winds.  This storm is moving towards Leicester, Spencer, Holden, Northboro, Marlboro, Shrewsbury, Grafton, and Worcester within the next half hour.  Another storm is blowing up near the Mass Pike and Route 20 and is heading toward Auburn and Sutton.  This cell looks like its going to combine with the first thunderstorm I talked about.  Another storm is developing across Bridgeport, CT and all of these storms are moving towards the Northeast a good clip.

Many other storms are popping up across New York State so this threat is not going away until later this afternoon.  The weekend after this is looking positive as the coastal storm that could have been a threat will not be and the Red Sox game should be okay tonight.  The rest of today's forecast here.
