tornado EF 0 Tornado Confirmed in Worcester

While I’m not expecting any severe thunderstorms today, there will be “typical” pop-up thunderstorms…mainly south of the MA Pike today, with the biggest risk in Bristol & Plymouth counties from early afternoon into the early evening. Don’t cancel your outdoors plans, but have a backup plan in mind to seek shelter indoors should a storm head your way.
