Severe Weather Coordination Message #2 – Friday August 19th 2011 Severe Weather Threat

Hello to all..

..Isolated to Scattered Strong to Severe Thunderstorms possible this afternoon and evening across much of the NWS Taunton County Warning Area, particularly interior areas. Damaging Winds, Large Hail and urban/poor drainage flooding are the main threats..
..Threat will be in the form of strong thunderstorms to isolated pulse type severe thunderstorms over the region due to lack of strong winds in the upper levels of the atmosphere..
..SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton are possible to likely this afternoon and evening..

At 715 AM, satellite imagery showed mostly clear conditions with some patchy clouds that should burn off over parts of the region later this afternoon. This should allow for strong heating and destablization over the region. In addition, a cold pool of temperatures aloft should also support more destablization over the region. A mitigating factor for today will be the lack of strong winds in the upper levels of the atmosphere. Putting this all together, there will be isolated to scattered strong thunderstorms with a few isolated pulse type severe thunderstorms over the region with damaging winds, large hail and urban and poor drainage flooding as the main threats.

SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton are possible to likely this afternoon and evening. This will be the last complete coordination message on this threat. A shortened coordination message will be issued if time allows and Ops at NWS Taunton are initiated. Below is the NWS Taunton Hazardous Weather Outlook:
