Severe storms are expected to begin after 3 p.m. ET in upstate NY and the inland Northeast.

A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect until 9 p.m. for Bristol, Providence, Kent, Washington and Newport counties.

Tuesday's official outlook from the Storm Prediction Center puts northern New Jersey in a "Moderate Risk" of severe weather, the 2rd highest of 5 risk categories.

There is also a low risk of an isolated tornado across western/central MA. A few non-severe thunderstorms are possible but the best chance is to the south of the Mohawk Valley.
