**(Severe Thunderstorm Watch)** in effect for **(All of NH)** thru **(8:00pm tonight)**.

The National Weather Service issued a **(Severe Thunderstorm Watch)** for All of NH)** thru **(8:00pm tonight)**.

A weather warning indicates a confirmed, current and present danger to this area.

We have just spoken to NWS Gray and NWS Taunton:

The Storm Prediction Center in Oklahoma has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for all of New Hampshire until 8 p.m. (This is fairly significant in that they have put us at “moderate risk” which is something they normally do not do– words from NWS Gray Forecaster: “They are pretty fired up about this.” ) The expectation is that we will see 2 to 3 waves of storms coming through the area (currently in E. N.Y.) and so we will have them for a significant duration. Strong winds of over 55 mph are the main concern. Rain may bring some localized flooding and/or ponding but not the greatest issue. There is a good chance of some large hail (30%) and chance of isolated tornado involved with these storms.

Stay tuned to NOAA weather and Take necessary safety precautions.
