BREAKING: Severe Thunderstorm Watch Issued for Much of New England

A wicked line of thunderstorms roared across Southern New England this morning downing trees, power lines, and ripping up front lawns.  Seriously

Rhode Island and SE MA look like they were painted blue because there were so many wind reports
SPC storm reports 8 am Mon 8 am Tue
Now another severe thunderstorm watch is up.
Severe Thunderstorm Watch til 8 pm
1 PM Update
The atmosphere is ready to explode this afternoon
CAPE 1 PM (image SPC)
 There is ample potential energy in and around Southern New England.  The winds are turning with height (ample wind shear)
Bulk effective wind shear 1 PM (image SPC)
These parameters (and many others) should lead to supercells and line segments alike this afternoon.  The radar has already popped
SNE Radar 110 PM (image NWS)
Keep an eye to the sky, especially North of MA Pike into S NH, VT, and ME.  The cold front will not pass until this evening so Southern New England (south of Pike, CT, RI) may get another round of storms later, in addition to anything the might pop this afternoon.
