WE COULD BE IN FOR SOME STORMS. KELLY ANN: THE HEAT AND HUMIDITY IS FLIUE THE SEVERE RISK OF STORMS AS WE HAVE A HEAT ADVISORY THAT CONTINUES THROUGH TODAY. THAT’S FOR ALL OF THE AREA. THE EXCEPTION IS THE ISLANDS AND ,CA WHERE THE INDEXES CLIMBING OVER 100. RIGHT NOW IT FEELSIK L 102 IN DOWNTOWN BOSTON. IT’S ACTUALLY 95, WHICH MEANS OFFICIALLY WE ARE TYING IN THE RECORD TODAY. 96 DEGREES IS FURTHER HIGH –S THE HIGH FOR TODAY. AND TH US TYING THE RECORD AND LIKELY EVEN GETTING ABOVE IT TODAY, IT’’ GOING TO GO DOWN INTO A VERY HOT JUNE FOR US. W WE ARE ALSO WATCHING THE STORM POTENTIAL. WE HAVE THE HEAT AND HUMIDITY FUINEL THE STORM THAT. AS EARLY AS 2:00 P.M., ISOLATED STORMS COULD DEVELOP. HOWEVER, THE TEAHRT IS INCREASING FOR BOSTON AS WE TRAVEL INTO THE EVENING. 55:00 P.M. IS WHEN WE WILL START TOEE S DAMAGING WIND GUST POTENTIAL WITH STRAIGHT-LINE WINDS POSSIBLE AS THESE STORMS FORMED INTO AIN L THIS EVENING, DIMINISHING AROUND 9:00 P.M. TONIGHT. STRONG WINDS ARE THE BIGGEST CONCERNS, BUT WE COULD ALSO SEE STRONG DOWNPOURS. LIGHTNING IS SOMETHING WE COULD ENCOUNTER. AND WE COULD EVEN CEASE — EVEN SEE SMALL HAIL. A WATCH HAS BEEN ISSUED. I WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED IF THIS IS EENXTDED TO THE SOUTH AS WE HAVE THAT CONCERN, EVEN EXTENDING INTO MASSACHUSETTS, FOR THAT RISK OF SEVERE WEATHER. RIGHT NOW, IT IS AT A THREE OUT OF FIVE ON THE SCALE. SO IT IS SOMETHING TOAT WCH AS THE STORMS ARE FIRING OFF IN UPSTATE NEW YORK WITH LIGHTNING ARSTTING TO ALSO DEVELOP. NOW LET’S GO THROUGH 3:00 P.M., ISOLATED STORMS ARE DEVELOPING, BUT THE MAIN ACTION IS STILL TO THE WEST. BY 5:00 P.M., WE ARE STARTING TO SEE THE WELL-FORMED LINE. I EXPECT BY THAT POINT WE ARE WATCHING AREAS ON 495 AND THIS WILL COINCIDE WITH THE EVENING COMMUTE, SO THISOULD REDUCE VISIBILITY AS IT PUSHES BY. BUT T LINE FORMING IS INDICATIVE OF A WINDOW POTENTIAL INTO THE EVENING. IT :00 P.M., STILL STRONG THUNDERSTORMS — AT 8:00 P.M., STILL SOME STRONG THUNDERSTORMS. THEN IT WILL START TO LOSE STRENGTH BY LATER THIS EVENING. IN THE OVERNIGHT, STORMS ARE POSSIBLE, NOT SEVE.RE AND WE WILL BE WATCHING FOR THAT POTENTIAL AS WE GET INTO THURAYSD. SOME THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE WITH HIGHS IN THE LOW 80’S. IT WILL NOT BE QUITE AS HOT, BUT WE ARE STILL HOLDING ONTO THAT STORM POTENTIAL, ALL BECAUSE THE FRONT WILL BE HANGING AROUND. WE AO LSHAVE LOW PRESSURE THAT WILL BE ALONG THE FRONT, BRINGING SHOWER CHANCES, EVEN INTO FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. THAT CHANCE WILL CONTIE. THAT IS WHY THERE IS A LIKELIHOOD OF OVER ONE INCH OF RAINFALL AS WE GET INTO THE WEEKEND. SO, AN UNSETTLED START TO THE WEEKEND. SHOWERS LIKELY FOR SATURDAY. WE WILL HAVEO T WATCH FOR A SHOWER ON SUNDAY ALTHOUGH THE CHANCES ARE NOT QUITE AS HIGH AS ON SATURDAY. IMPROVEMENTS ON MONDAY AND FOR THE START OF THE WEEK.
