Stormy Weather Early Wednesday Morning

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.

Stormy Wednesday: Hazardous Weather Throughout the Day

Thunderstorms will likely rumble through Belmont and eastern Massachusetts for most of the day, Wednesday, June 16, as a violent weather front that has been punishing the East Coast for the past two days reaches eastern New England.

The National Weather Service issued its third Hazardous Weather Outlook for most of the region at 4:42 a.m. with thunderstorms popping up throughout the day beginning this morning around 8:15 a.m.

Heavy rainfall is likely though this evening as showers and thunderstorms move across the region,” the NWS reported this morning. “A few strong thunderstorms with gusty winds are possible.”

In addition, there is a flash flood warning for the region in effect until 2 p.m.

Stormy Fourth: Belmont Could See Wet Independence Day

While fireworks and cannons are what many are expecting this coming Friday Fourth of July, the weather could be just as explosive early on this holiday weekend. 

But while much of the talk has been directed southward with the possible development of the season's first tropical storm, a major cold front sweeping from the Midwest is likely to disrupt your holiday plans.

At 5:35 a.m. today, Tuesday, July 1, The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather forecast for eastern Massachusetts beginning Wednesday night, July 2 with "a few strong thunderstorms are possible late Wednesday into Friday afternoon. 

"These storms could approach severe levels" with the main threat being "isolated damaging wind gusts with a secondary concern for large hail."

The NWS said the most likely place for this weather to occur is west of Worcester.

Yet forecasts are indicating that July 3 and Independence Day will be wet in the area with rain anticipated for both days. "There is the potential for widespread heavy rain and localized flash flooding Thursday into Friday night," according to the NWS. 

The latest news from down South is that the tropical depression now lingering off the east coast of Florida will strengthen and head up the Eastern Seaboard but will be pushed out into the Atlantic by the cold front that will be bringing the rain into Belmont. But it will likely increase the surf and tides along the New England coast beginning on Saturday.
