Cold front moving in; strong to severe storms in effect
BOSTON (WHDH) -- High temperatures mid-week are expected to have paved the way for strong-to-severe thunderstorms in New England over the next few days.
On Wednesday temperatures were in the nineties and a heat advisory was in effect for much of the eastern half of Massachusetts throughout the afternoon.
Thursday, temperatures were forecasted to be a bit lower than Wednesday, with highs in the mid-80s. However, high humidity was expected to leave New Englanders feeling just as uncomfortable as they did on Wednesday.
An approaching cold front from the west will put an end to the heat and could bring thunderstorms to the area.
A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued until 10 p.m. for all of NH, as well as Worcester, Suffolk, Middlesex and Essex counties. A severe thunderstorm warning is in effect for Franklin, Middlesex and Worcester counties until 3:15 p.m.
