Watch #527

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for most of Connecticut until 11PM. There is a Tornado Watch for Litchfield County until 9PM

This updated watch is in anticipation of the squall line over Pa. entering Connecticut this evening. Strong straight line winds and isolated tornadoes are possible even though this is a Severe Thunderstorm Watch. I still think the highest possibility of damaging thunderstorms will be across Western Connecticut.

Please stay alert this evening.

Here is the bulletin:

URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
