Strong winds, tornado threat across Mass. with Sunday storms

Storm Team 5 is tracking a second round of storms Sunday that could produce flash flooding and damaging winds, and even a tornado risk.After a warm and muggy morning with decaying thunderstorms and showers, strong-to-severe storms are expected to develop north and west of southern New England as early as 1 p.m. before they shift southeast through the afternoon and evening.”Any of these individual cells could produce that really strong outlook for wind and even possibly for rotation,” said StormTeam 5 meteorologist Kelly Ann Cicalese.The risk of severe weather increases as you head north and west of Boston, into northern Massachusetts, Vermont and New Hampshire. In Boston, storms likely won’t arrive until after 4 p.m. and even later for areas south of Boston. The threat of severe weather should end by 10 p.m.StormTeam 5 LINKS: Weather Alerts | Interactive Radar | Forecast mapsThe storms are being fueled by a warm front coming from the southwest that is bringing high heat and tropical levels of humidity to southern New England.”It will get hot this afternoon. We’re making a run toward the upper 80s (Sunday) with the exception of the South Coast, Cape Cod and islands. The wind that’s transporting in the heat will be a wind off the ocean in these locations. That’s why 70s are going to be more widespread down there,” Cicalese said. A few low impact showers are possible Monday; but, there will be plenty of dry times as conditions continue to improve heading into Tuesday. In the event of a tornado, residents in the storms’ path are advised to go to a basement or an interior room on the lowest floor of a sturdy building and avoid windows. If you are outdoors, in a mobile home or vehicle, move to the closest substantial shelter and protect yourself from flying debris.
