I am closely watching a squall line that is now pushing across eastern New York State right now at a forward speed of about 50-55 mph.
This squall line is likely to push into far western Mass around 9 pm and reach the I-91 corridor by about 9:30 pm. This squall line is likely to then reach a line from Orange-Gardner to Sturbridge by about 9:45 pm. It is expected that this squall line will race across Central Mass around 10 pm.
While there is likely to be very little, if any thunder or lightning, this squall line will still likely pack a big punch as it will be accompanied by wind gusts of 50 to 70 mph and a period of extremely heavy rainfall. Downed tree limbs and some power outages are quite possible, so it may be best to pull out those flashlights and charge up those phones, just in case.
