More Heat, Humidity, and Thunderstorms Today

Oppressive heat and humidity will continue to dominate our weather in New England.  With these conditions comes a risk of thunderstorms some of which may be severe.  There were quite a few severe weather reports yesterday in the northeast

The threat today should be slightly further north but several areas will get hit again today especially in Southern VT and NH.  The NH and ME seacoast have been routinely pounded by thunderstorms in the past few weeks
