Storms are on the horizon for New England. Wednesday could start with a few showers or some thunder, but the main concern is in the afternoon and at night, when the storms may become severe. According to the National Weather Service, an approaching cold front will cause scattered showers and thunderstorms, a few of which could bring along strong winds and localized torrential rainfall. As such, there is a chance of localized flooding and locally damaging wind gusts. Additionally, there is a low risk of a tornado Wednesday afternoon and night.
