   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 444

   SUMMARY...The severe threat continues across Severe Thunderstorm
   Watch 444. Damaging gusts are the main threat, though an instance or
   two of hail cannot be ruled out.

   DISCUSSION...A loosely organized MCS, with a history of at least a
   few damaging gusts, persists across portions of New England. An
   instance of 1 inch diameter hail was also recently reported.
   Mesoanalysis trends depict low-level (0-3 km) lapse rates decreasing
   with eastward extent, and from 8 to 6 C/km overall over the past
   couple of hours. As such, the severe threat may have already peaked
   in intensity. Nonetheless, a cold pool appears to be driving ongoing
   convection, suggesting that at least a couple more damaging gusts
   and perhaps an instance of hail remain possible over the next few
