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. 
Tornado Watch 274
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.
WPC Northeast surface analysis 11 am
As of 1 PM temperatures were a good 5-10 degrees warmer in NY and PA
RTMA 2 m temps 1 PM
Short range, high resolution guidance is showing the potential for a nasty round of storms from Albany towards Pittsfield, MA. 
17z HRRR simulated radar 6 PM est (image weatherbell)
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.
Day 2 SPC thunderstorm outlook valid 8 am Tuesday
 I'll post in the morning with the latest.
