A watch indicates that conditions are favorable for tornado development. A warning, which has not been issued, indicates a tornado has been spotted.

A tornado warning was issued for Northern Cheshire County in New Hampshire. That warning expired at 4:15 p.m. Severe Thunderstorm Warnings were also in effect for several New Hampshire counties around that same time.

WBZ-TV Executive Weather Producer Terry Eliasen wrote that severe weather is possible throughout the afternoon and evening on Tuesday.

It has been nearly a year since an F3 tornado touched down in Massachusetts. Last June 1, the tornado tore across several towns in Western and Central Massachusetts.

Three people were killed during last year’s outbreak.
