Thursday thunderstorm threat

Showers and storms pass through Thursday around noon

Thursday will bring a few interesting weather elements into play across southern New England. First, temperatures will have a chance to rise to near the average high temperature for the day (53°), that's something hasn't happened in nearly 10days!

More importantly, however, there may a few November thunderstoms passing through. It appears as though the prime threat time will be from late morning (11am) through mid afternoon (3 or 4PM).

As you can see most of our area is under a slight risk for these storms as forecast by the Severe Storms Lab in Norman, OK:

This image below is from the High Resolution Rapid Refresh Model showing the storms developing to our west at 7am Thursday:

Our in house "RPM" model shows this line passing through here around noontime:

At this point we do not expect these storms to be severe but aside from some flashes of lightning and rumbles of thunder we should be prepared for locally heavy rain in the late morning to mid afternoon time period. As well as a few brief, intense wind gusts from the south, perhaps around 30-35mph.

We'll keep you updated right here, on the NBC10 app and of course on NBC10 news, especially Sunrise with Zack Green.

Thanks for reading, Mark!
