The areas of greatest concern are in New York State, Vermont, and far west Massachusetts (Berkshire County) and west Connecticut.
Further east, in central and eastern MA, Rhode Island, and most of southern New Hampshire, the threat is much less. In these areas, the storm line will arrive after the main heating of the day (mostly between 6pm and 11pm) and is likely to decrease when it does.

However, some storms can still capture some strong gusts of wind, which is why a strict storm watch has been issued for counties Worcester, Middlesex and Essex until 11:00 PM. On Wednesday. This clock also covers all of south New Hampshire.
The timing in the central MA (Worcester area) is closer to 7pm. and in east Massachusetts (Boston area, anything should survive the trip) between 8pm and 10pm.
After this cold front tonight we clean up pretty quickly and on Thursday there is sunshine and lower humidity with temperatures that are about 10 degrees cooler than on Wednesday over 90 degrees.
