Flash Flood Watch In Effect For Parts Of Maryland

The National Weather Service had issued a tornado watch for Worcester, Hampshire, Franklin, and Hampden counties and severe thunderstorm warnings just about everywhere else.

"Wind damage with these storms may occur before the rain and lightning begin", Upton-based NWS meteorologists said in a statement.

The region is also bracing itself for another possible storm Tuesday afternoon, Jensenius said.

It may not look like it across the area for most of Tuesday, but the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states are once again bracing for a round of severe weather Tuesday afternoon.

Although the storm is moving quickly east, severe thunderstorm watches remain in effect from Washington, D.C.to Philadelphia and New York City to Boston.

To be more specific, the weather service indicated that the main time of concern for the thunderstorms is between 2 and 9 p.m.

A tornado watch was issued Tuesday afternoon for upstate NY, the Hudson Valley, northeast Pennsylvania, western Connecticut, Massachusetts and southern Vermont.

The storm brought torrential rain, hail, thunder and winds up to 70 miles per hour to New York City and the surrounding suburbs in the tri-state area. The storms could bring flooding rains, damaging winds and hail.

Temperatures will climb into the 80s across most of the state Tuesday while southeastern MA and Cape Cod will be cooler.

Tornadoes are possible this afternoon from Scranton, Pennsylvania, to Binghamton, New York, most of the central and southern Hudson Valley and into CT and MA. While the river is not expected to reach flood stage in those areas, it is likely to continue rising through early Wednesday morning, as runoff continues to flow into the river.
