Severe thunderstorms are expected to affect the area Sunday afternoon and evening.

The storms are expected between 2 and 10 p.m. Sunday. “The main threats will be damaging winds and large hail, but a tornado or two cannot be ruled out,” a Facebook post by National Weather Service Wakefield stated. “Please plan now to assure you have multiple ways to receive any issued warnings, and continue to monitor for the latest information.”

Impacts could include localized downed trees and power lines and isolated structural damage from damaging wind gusts, according to a National Weather Service briefing.

An isolated tornado or two is possible, and hail up to the size of quarters could fall.
