Batten down the hatches! The thunderstorms are back in town.
Thunderstorms with gusty winds and hail rumbled through western Massachusetts this afternoon, prompting the National Weather Service to issue an alert in one case. But police in several towns said that there were no reports of damage or injuries.
The severe thunderstorm warning for north central Franklin County expired at 6:15 p.m.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms are predicted throughout the evening around the state. The thunderstorms are most likely to hit the western and north central portions, said Matthew Belk, a National Weather Service meteorologist.
The thunderstorms come after violent storms Friday caused flooding, peppered the streets with hail, and downed trees and power lines, leaving thousands without power.
