A Tornado Watch has been posted for Western Southern New England until 9 pm Saturday. Severe thunderstorms developed near New York City this morning, bringing a tornado warning to Queens and Brooklyn by 1030 am. There have been some pictures of a tornado floating around on social media, but, so far, nothing has been confirmed.

The strong to severe t-storms are moving into Western Connecticut, and will likely bring some wild weather to W CT and W MA this afternoon.

There was nothing developing late this morning in Rhode Island or Southeastern Massachusetts, but anything that does develop this afternoon could quickly become strong to severe. The main threat through this afternoon is for strong winds in any t-storms, with a low risk of tornadoes – greatest in W CT and W MA.

Keep an eye on the Interactive Radar on rightweather.net.

A second, larger area of rain is moving through Pennsylvania and New York this afternoon. That line of showers and t-storms will move through Southern New England from this evening through dawn tomorrow. Those storms should weaken some as they approach RI and SE MA, but some strong winds can’t be ruled out with those storms, either.

The bottom line is there is the potential for some active weather in RI and SE MA today. Not everyone is going to see strong, damaging storms, and some may not even see heavy showers, but, given the setup in the atmosphere, it definitely warrants keeping an eye on the situation – especially if you have outdoor plans late this afternoon or tonight.
