The STORMTracker Doppler Network shows thunderstorms are already firing up over southwest Montana in response to significant daytime heating.

Our main concern is for the potential of strong to severe thunderstorms north and west of Boston, especially outside of Interstate 495 in central and western MA. "There are a few isolated storms that could produce some strong winds or some hail". Expect hail damage to roofs, siding, windows, and vehicles.

Starting in the early afternoon, some showers will start to pop up in the mountains and foothills; some thunderstorms could develop as well.

Most of the storms are expected to produce less than a tenth of an inch of rain.
