Severe Weather Coordination Message #1 – Friday August 19th, 2011 Severe Weather Threat

Hello to all..

..Isolated to Scattered Strong to Severe Thunderstorms are possible Friday Afternoon into the early evening across much of the NWS Taunton County Warning Area. Damaging winds, large hail and urban/poor drainage flooding are the main threats..
..Weak wind fields aloft should preclude a significant severe weather outbreak but cooler temperatures aloft combined with daytime heating may allow pulse type isolated severe thunderstorms along with strong thunderstorms to form over the area and be a bit more widespread than today when an isolated strong thunderstorm over Ashburnham Massachusetts dumped 1.5″ of rain in 30 minutes and produced pea sized hail..
..SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton are possible Friday Afternoon into early evening. A more complete coordination message will be posted by 830 AM Friday Morning. Below is the NWS Taunton Hazardous Weather Outlook..
