After a morning of summer weather, Belmont residents should prepare for stormy weather Saturday afternoon, Sept. 6.
The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook for Belmont and all of Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire as “a line of showers and thunderstorm will sweep across the region” after 2 p.m. and lasting to 10 p.m.
“There … is a low probability of a very brief, weak tornado,” warned the Service which issued the report at 3 a.m. Saturday.
Torrential rainfall will occur with the strongest storms resulting in a very localized flash flood threat in come areas. A few of the thunderstorms may become severe producing locally damaging wind gusts and perhaps an isolated report of large hail.
If the power does go out, call Belmont Light’s emergency number: 617-993-2800. Don’t call 911.
