Clouds over Route 2A in Williston on Sunday afternoon.

Tornadoes are possible in all counties of Vermont until 8 p.m.

The National Weather Service issued a tornado watch for the state Sunday afternoon. A tornado watch covers large areas when conditions are right for tornadoes to form. “A few tornadoes likely,” reads the weather service bulletin.

The weather service encourages people to review their emergency supplies and plans so that they are ready if a tornado touches down.

Scattered hail and strong wind gusts are also possible.

The tornado watch also covers counties in New York, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Maine.

As the afternoon went on, several severe thunderstorm warnings were issued for strong storms across the state.
