Severe thunderstorm watch is in place until 8 pm

In fact, a Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until early tomorrow morning for all of Western Mass.

Rainfall totals are expected to diminish toward the south and east, with coastal rainfall totals of one-quarter to one-half inch expected. The strongest storms may produce gusty winds, large hail, and frequent lightning. An isolated tornado can not be ruled out somewhere in the region.

A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for low-lying and flood-prone areas of St Elizabeth, St James, Hanover and Westmoreland. The high temperature will be near 80. We are under a slight risk for severe storms through Monday morning.

Several severe weather alerts are in effect in Lancaster County, according to the National Weather Service. These damaging elements will be isolated events, not widespread.

The highest severe threat is over northeastern New Jersey and the Lower Hudson Valley, where possible tornadoes could form.

Check the Interactive Radar on to track the storms as they move through the state. At the moment, this watch only extends southward to Prince William County, but I wouldn't be surprised if later updates included parts of the immediate Fredericksburg area.

It also may drive rapid rises on smaller streams and rivers. Overnight lows should be in the upper 60s and low 70s.

It is projected that light to heavy showers will continue to affect sections of all parishes this evening and tonight. If this scenario happens, Tuesday will feature a partly cloudy sky with perhaps an isolated shower.

The trigger is an approaching cold front from the west. The normal highs for June 21 and 22 are both 81 degrees.
