Good morning! Quick update courtesy of being in a class with a computer and completing the original assignment.
With the cold front approaching New England, there will be a chance of showers and thunderstorms today. These storms could be strong to severe, mainly in northern New England, but there will still be a chance. No widespread severe weather is expected, but a few storms could approach severe limits. SPC has a marginal risk over northern New England today. Any severe storms would carry a primary risk of damaging winds, with isolated large hail not fully out of the question. A brief tornado cannot be ruled out, primarily across northern/eastern Maine where there will be decent helicities.
Some showers/storms have already fired west of New England, but are still a ways away; the closest one is along the International Border between New York and Quebec, southwest of Montreal. I can’t determine if the radar signal near Plattsburgh, NY is rain, biological signals, or something else.
SPC has put out a mesoscale discussion noting a severe thunderstorm watch is currently not expected due to the marginal/isolated nature of severe weather. Stay tuned for possible severe weather warnings.
A watch indicates the possibility of severe weather; a warning means it is imminent. Move indoors immediately when any thunderstorm – severe or not – approaches.
Have a good day!
