Heat and Severe Weather Coordination Message #2 – July 22nd, 2011

Hello to all..

..Intense Heat and Humidity will peak today over Southern New England..
..An Excessive Heat Warning is in effect from Noon to 6 PM Today for Northern Connecticut, Norfolk, Suffolk, Southeast Middlesex, Northern  and Western Plymouth Counties of Massachusetts and Providence, Kent and Washington Counties of Rhode Island..
..A Heat Advisory is in effect from Noon to 6 PM Today for the remainder of Middlesex, Essex, Worcester, Eastern Hampshire, and Eastern Hampshire Counties of Massachusetts and Hillsborough county New Hampshire..
..Even outside the Heat Warning/Advisory areas, intense heat and humidity is expected particularly away from the coastal waters and anyone spending a prolonged period of time outdoors should use caution and drink plenty of liquids..
..Convective chances over the next couple days look difficult to predict at this time. There is an outside chance for Mesoscale Convective System development tonight into Saturday Morning. Later on Saturday into early Sunday Morning temperatures aloft will cool while it will still be very warm at the surface though not as warm as the past 2 days, this may also allow for convection. Probabilities look low and SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton are not anticipated at this time though SKYWARN Self-Activation may be needed and the situation will be monitored closely. Below is the NWS Taunton Excessive Heat Warning/Heat Advisory Statement, Heat Safety Rules and Area Forecast Discussion that discusses convective chances over the region later today through Early Sunday..
