Tornado Watch for Middlesex, Worcester Counties
The alert is in effect until 9 p.m. Friday.
The National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch for most of the state, including Middlesex and Worcester counties.
Showers are likely, with a chance of thunderstorms that may produce gusty winds and heavy rainfall.
A tornado watch differs from a tornado warning; the latter means that a funnel cloud has been spotted or is denoted by radar.
