   Preparedness actions...

   Review your severe weather safety procedures for the possibility
   of dangerous weather today. Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio, 
   weather.gov, or other media for watches and warnings. A tornado
   watch means that conditions are favorable for tornadoes to form
   during the next several hours. If a tornado warning is issued for
   your area, move to a place of safety, ideally in a basement or
   interior room on the lowest floor of a sturdy building.


The storm will continue moving east during the week, and the thunderstorm threat shifts to the Mid-Atlantic on Wednesday. This is the same system that will bring rain to Southern New England on Wednesday and Thursday. There is a chance of thunderstorms on Thursday, but widespread severe weather is not expected.
