A line of strong to severe thunderstorms is expected to move into western and northern Massachusetts around 7 p.m., then racing southeastward across the rest of the region by 10 p.m., as it gradually weakens.


The main threats with these storms will be damaging wind gusts and possibly an isolated tornado. The greatest potential for severe conditions will be in northern and western Massachusetts.
