Post Severe Weather Coordination Message #2 – Saturday 11/13/21 Severe Weather Outbreak

Hello to all…

..Rare November Severe Weather Outbreak hits Southern New England. 3 Tornadoes affected the NWS Boston/Norton Coverage Area in Connecticut and Rhode Island. It is also worth noting that in NWS Brookhaven New York’s coverage area, 8 tornadoes occurred, 6 in New York and 2 in Connecticut and brings the total tornadoes for Saturday November 13th to 11 tornadoes across Southern New York and Southern New England..
..A hearty thank you to all Amateur Radio and non-Amateur Radio SKYWARN spotters who provided robust support on post storm damage and hail reports, pictures and videos. If there are any further post Storm damage and hail reports, pictures, videos, including approximate time of damage or hail, town and street location, they can be sent to our WX1BOX Facebook and Twitter feeds or the email address pics@nsradio.org..

A rare November severe weather outbreak which included tornadoes impacted Southern New England on Saturday November 13th, 2021. To put this event in context, the event is rare but not totally unprecedented. Here are some facts and figures to put this event in perspective as provided by NWS Boston/Norton:

Since 1950, there have been no tornadoes ever recorded in the month of November in Connecticut and Rhode Island until November 13th, 2021. In the state of Massachusetts, tornadoes were recorded in November and December on the following dates:

November 21, 1956 in Worcester Co, Essex Co, and Norfolk Co;
November 18, 1967 in Plymouth Co;
November 7, 1971 in Worcester Co and Middlesex Co;

Other notable out of season tornadoes also include:
December 18, 1951 on Marthas Vineyard
December 18, 1956 in Essex Co (near Middleton)

Also noteworthy is the Goshen and South Ashfield tornadoes on February 25, 2017 which were the first ever recorded tornadoes in Massachusetts in the month of February.

This event was caused by a strong cold front and low pressure system that had very cold mid-level temperatures along with strong winds aloft that compensated for an environment that was not particularly stable across the entire atmosphere due to lower dewpoints and temperatures that were in the upper 40s and 50s. This set the stage for strong to severe thunderstorms that produced, damaging winds, hail and several tornadoes. A reasonable example of an event that was similar in more recent times is the October 23rd, 2018 severe weather outbreak where 4 tornadoes occurred in the NWS Boston/Norton coverage area with many hail reports and some straightline wind damage reports. This was also a rare event but not unprecedented.

The tornadoes in many cases were on the ground briefly and they were EF0 to EF1 tornadoes that occurred in the region. There were also pockets of straightline wind damage and stronger wind gusts in several areas with a 69 MPH measured wind gust at the Chappy Ferry Point in Edgartown, MA, 59 MPH at Fairhaven – West Island, 55 MPH at TF Green State Airport in Warwick, RI, 54 MPH at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, CT and 51 MPH Gust at Brainard Airport in Hartford, CT.

In our coverage area, there were preliminary Amateur Radio and non-Amateur Radio SKYWARN reports of storm damage under every tornado path along with general pockets of wind damage in severe thunderstorms also reported SKYWARN. These reports along with the later storm photos and videos helped to provide ground truth during the event and support to allow for rapid storm surveying of the area to show the three tornado paths that occurred. We are very grateful for all the help and support of our community of spotters for their support during this severe weather outbreak.

We may post one more post severe weather coordination message with any final updates and information. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Local Storm Report, Public Information Statement on the damage surveys, a NWS summary graphic on the Tornadoes in New York and New England, an updated raw Amateur Radio Log of storm damage reports and hail reports and the WX1BOX Facebook Photo Album of storm damage from this event:

Severe Weather Coordination Message #1 – Saturday 11/13/21 Severe Weather and Strong Wind Gust Potential

Hello to all…

..Another strong cold front will bring a period of strong winds and the potential for Isolated to Scattered Strong to Severe Thunderstorms with the potential for strong to damaging winds, hail, brief heavy rainfall leading to urban and poor drainage flooding and at least some lightning as the primary threats with an isolated tornado as a secondary threat..
..The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has much of Connecticut, Southwest and South-Central Massachusetts and North-Central Rhode Island in a slight risk for severe weather with a marginal risk for severe weather over the rest of Southern New England..
..A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is now in effect through 700 PM EDT for Connecticut and Rhode Island and adjacent areas of Massachusetts should monitor closely..
..Strong Wind Gusts of around 40 MPH or likely later tonight into early Sunday Morning after the front and any thunderstorms passes through the region. These winds may cause isolated pockets of tree and wire damage and isolated power outages..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the severe weather and strong wind potential for Saturday Afternoon and Evening. This will be the only coordination message on this severe weather potential as we shift into operations mode. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Area Forecast Discussion, SPC Severe Thunderstorm Watch Statement and SPC Day-1 Convective Outlook:

Storm/Severe Weather Coordination Message #2 – Friday 11/12/21 Heavy Rainfall/Strong Wind/Isolated Severe Thunderstorm Potential

Hello to all…

..A strong cold front will bring a period of brief heavy rainfall with a quick 1-2″ of rain, strong wind gusts of 35-50 MPH with isolated higher gusts at the coast, and the possibility for isolated strong to severe thunderstorms with damaging winds as the primary threat and even an isolated tornado as a secondary threat Friday Morning through early Friday Evening. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has continued Connecticut, Rhode Island, Southwest, South-Central and Southeast Massachusetts in a marginal risk for severe weather..
..A Wind Advisory is now in effect through 7 PM Friday Evening for Eastern Essex, Bristol, Plymouth, Barnstable, Dukes, Nantucket Counties of Massachusetts, Eastern Kent, Washington, Bristol and Newport Counties Rhode Island for sustained winds 20-30 MPH with gusts up to 50 MPH likely. These winds with a number of trees still having leaves on them will cause isolated to scattered pockets of tree and wire damage and isolated power outages. Winds could be locally enhanced in any convective showers and thunderstorms..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the severe weather, strong wind and heavy rainfall potential for Friday..

A strong cold front will bring a brief period of heavy rainfall, strong wind gusts and isolated severe thunderstorm potential. The headlines depict the current thinking with the biggest change being a Wind Advisory for South-Central Rhode Island, Southeast Massachusetts including the Cape and Islands and the Cape Ann area of Eastern Essex County. Key factors remain as follows:

1.) Amount of instability or ability for strong winds aloft and jet dynamics to allow for any isolated strong to severe thunderstorms to form along the cold front.
2.) Ability for strong winds in any convective showers and thunderstorms to reach the surface. If temperatures reach the mid-60s or higher, these winds will have a greater potential to reach the surface. Given some of the wind profiles and the potential for temperatures to warm to the mid-60s, strong winds may occur generally and in any convective showers and thunderstorms so a Wind advisory has been posted for Southeast New England and the Cape Ann area.
3.) Any flooding should be confined to nuisance urban and poor drainage flooding but will be monitored.

SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the severe weather, strong wind and heavy rainfall potential for Friday. This will be the last coordination message on Friday’s storm system as we shift into operations mode.

Storm/Severe Weather Coordination Message #1 – Late Saturday Afternoon & Evening 10/30/21 Isolated Severe Thunderstorm & Strong Wind Potential

Hello to all…

..Isolated to Scattered Strong to Severe Thunderstorms are possible in portions of Eastern Massachusetts for late Saturday Afternoon through Saturday Night timeframe in roughly the 5 PM-11 PM EDT Saturday timeframe. Strong to damaging winds are the main threat in and around any thunderstorms as a strengthening low pressure system tracks over Southern New England. Brief heavy rainfall with urban and poor drainage flooding is a secondary concern..
..Wind gusts of 30-45 MPH outside of any convection with isolated higher gusts is also possible across coastal Southern New England. These wind gusts may slow power restoration efforts from the mid-week major nor’easter and may result in some new power outages and tree and wire damage in areas that experience the strongest winds or isolated to scattered strong to severe thunderstorms..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the severe weather/strong wind potential for late Saturday Afternoon through Saturday Night. This will be the only coordination message on this weather event unless another upgrade to the situation occurs and time allows for an update..

..Post Storm Coordination Message on the major nor’easter that affected the region Tuesday Night 10/26/21-Wednesdsay Night 10/27/21 will be posted later today as time permits as we monitor the potential for strong winds and isolated to scattered strong to severe thunderstorms in Eastern Massachusetts for late Saturday Afternoon into Saturday Night. Storm photos can be sent as a reply to this message via our WX1BOX Facebook and Twitter feed and via the email address pics@nsradio.org with credit given to the spotter unless otherwise indicated. We are currently working on coalescing all the storm damage photos for upload into a WX1BOX Facebook Album. Many thanks to many of you have submitted your storm damage photos, reports, and videos during and after this significant storm system…
