Tornado Watch for Portions of Western New England
A tornado watch has been issued by the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, OK for Berkshire County in Western Massachusetts and Bennington County in SW Vermont.
A surface low pressure system is moving across Ontario with a trailing cold front and a leading warm front. The tornado threat is in between the warm and cold front.
As of 1 PM temperatures were a good 5-10 degrees warmer in NY and PA
Short range, high resolution guidance is showing the potential for a nasty round of storms from Albany towards Pittsfield, MA.
These will fall apart as they head east so no worries in Southeastern New England from any severe weather (at least today). Although I believe Western New England has the greatest chance of severe weather tomorrow there could be isolated storms further east.
I'll post in the morning with the latest.
