Special Weather Statement
Issued: 3:18 PM Jul. 17, 2019 – National Weather Service
...A FEW STRONG TO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ALONG WITH A LOCALIZED
FLOOD THREAT EXIST THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING...

A cold front approaching southern New England will result in
scattered showers and thunderstorms developing around mid
afternoon persisting into the first part of the evening. A few of
the thunderstorms may become strong to severe and produce
isolated/localized wind damage. In addition...torrential rain may
result in 1 to 2 inch per hour rainfall rates with the stronger
thunderstorms. This may result in localized flooding, particularly
if the activity occurs over urbanized centers. Lastly...these
thunderstorms are expected to contain dangerous cloud to ground
lightning.

Please keep an eye and if you have outdoor plans be prepared to
seek an indoor shelter if threatening weather approaches.
