Map: A tornado watch has been issued for parts of MA

A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect until 9 p.m. for areas shaded in orange. The weather service's hazardous weather outlook covers Rhode Island, eastern, northeastern and southeastern MA. Some could be strong to severe with heavy rain, damaging wind and hail.

A tornado watch was issued for Litchfield County until 8 p.m.

But along with daily forecasts, meteorologists at the National Weather Service also monitor severe weather before it enters the region.

A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued for Bristol County, Essex County, Middlesex County, Norfolk County, Plymouth County and Suffolk County. With the front looking relatively weak, temperatures won't drop much, with highs still expected to hit the upper 70s.

An "enhanced" risk means numerous severe storms with damaging hail could result.

Thunderstorms are most likely to develop in mid to late afternoon. A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is now in effect until 10 pm.

Saturday, there will be a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, with a high of 85, the weather service said. This round of rain with some imbedded thunderstorm activity has the potential to cause more widespread urban and street flooding during Saturday.

You can see live weather updates via the National Weather Service and other Twitter sources below.

Storms remain in the forecast for Wednesday and again Thursday as the front remains draped across the Ozarks.

It will be warm and humid, with high temperatures reaching around 80 degrees this afternoon.
