Severe Thunderstorms Expected in the Berkshires Tuesday


Jensenius said the storm took down trees along a 36-mile path beginning in Charlestown and running through Langdon, Acworth, Lempster, Bradford, and Warner, ending somewhere near Route 127 Webster. This follows a watch issued earlier Tuesday afternoon.

After a couple of days of lovely weather, it looks like Mother Nature has some other ideas for Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service. The watch is in effect until 11 p.m.

Update: (8:15 p.m. Monday) Meteorologists extended the severe thunderstorm warning for Osage County until 9 p.m. Monday.

For today's threat, we think the District and areas south have the greatest chance of severe weather, but everyone, including Washington's northern suburbs, should stay alert.

A tornado watch was issued this afternoon for upstate NY, the Hudson Valley, northeast Pennsylvania, western Connecticut, Massachusetts and southern Vermont. Not everyone will see thunderstorm activity but most of the area likely will. Heavy rain, damaging wind gusts, flash flooding, lightning and hail are all possible.

However isolated large hail along with heavy rain/street flooding is also a concern. This will set us up for a flow of tropical moisture to move up the coast into New England that will possibly bring rounds of soaking rains on Saturday.

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