Thunderstorms will likely develop between 2-9 p.m. across the region.
While central and western Massachusetts are currently in a severe thunderstorm watch, severe weather is again a possibility eastern parts of state. The National Weather Service says severe weather is a possibility this afternoon and evening as warm and humid air returns to area. Severe storms are likely north and west of I-95. Most areas can expect these storms to develop between 2-9 p.m., although some may last late into the night. Minor flooding is also possible with these storms. "Downpours, lightning, small hail are the greatest concerns but because a warm front will be near these thunderstorms, some of the storms may try to rotate," WHDH meteorologist Jeremy Reiner says on his blog.

Here is a look at the latest forecast for Tewksbury from the National Weather Service.
Question: As Tewksbury residents wake up this morning to find their homes and cars buried under roughly two feet of snow, there is really only two questions on everyone's mind -- when is it going to stop snowing and how much more will we get? Answer: According to the National Weather Service, the worst of the snow will end by around 3 p.m. today (Feb. 9). But by then, Tewksbury will have received an extra 4-8 inches of snow, which could push the total for the storm over 30 inches. The heavy winds are expected to continue for most of the day, as well. Winds will be steady at 22-26 MPH, with gusts over 40 MPH. Tonight, a few more flurries are possible but the big issue will be the cold temperatures, which will dip into the mid-teens. The …

A blizzard warning is in effect until 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9.
OK, so that two feet of snow we were preparing to get last night? Better add another foot to that. The National Weather Service on Friday morning adjusted its predicted snowfall totals to three feet. The timing of the snowfall is roughly the same: with light snow falling in Middlesex County Friday morning, and becoming heavy later in the afternoon and into the Friday evening commute. So, as WHDH meteorologist Jeremy Reiner notes in his blog, you have a "few hours left this morning" to run some errands, but travel will deteriorate this afternoon. By 7 tonight, most towns will have 2 to 4 inches, Reiner predicted. The storm should be the worst from 7 p.m. Friday to noon tomorrow, when snow could fall at a rate of 2 to 3 inches per hour. …

Storm is expected to strike Friday morning. Forecasts vary but snowfall totals could be historic.
Thirty-five years after the legendary Blizzard of '78 brought New England to its knees, another storm of possible historic proportions is preparing to descend on the region.

There will be several storms moving across the area all week that are expected to all bring rain to Tewksbury.
The light coating of white we saw on the ground Sunday afternoon is likely all the snow we’ll see as part of several storms that will move across Tewksbury this week, according to the National Weather Service. The greatest chance of snow will come to the northwest of Boston. On Monday night into Tuesday, the next storm will bring “mainly rain” to the area, the weather service said. Then on Tuesday night into Wednesday northwest winds could really pick up. Winds during that time could prompt a wind advisory, the weather service said. And finally, on Thursday night into Friday, another storm will again “probably bring mainly rain” with a greater chance of snow to start the storm for inland areas.
