There is low to moderate risk that Belmont and the rest of eastern Massachusetts will experience a few strong to severe thunderstorms overnight and into early Wednesday morning, Oct. 8, according to the latest update from the The National Weather Service.
The likely peak of the Hazardous Weather Outlook issued by the NWS will be from 4 a.m. to 8 a.m., Wednesday.
Due to the strong winds which will accompany the storms, down branches and perhaps some downed power lines are possible as trees are still full of leaves, said the Service in a report issued at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 7.
If residents should experience a power outage, they should call Belmont Light at 617-993-2800.
Yet the NSW said it can not rule out small hail or even an isolated tornado coming from the storm.
Despite the possible stormy weather, clouds will pass with sunshine likely in the afternoon.
