Severe Weather Coordination Message #2 – Thursday August 25th, 2011 Severe Weather Potential

Hello to all..

..Isolated to Scattered Strong to Severe Thunderstorms becoming more likely this Thursday afternoon and evening with the greatest threat over interior Southern New England. Damaging Winds, Large hail, urban and poor drainage flooding and perhaps even isolated supercells are the primay threats..
..Satellite imagery shows cloud cover over portions of Western and Central New England but weather models are indicating drying that will take place and breaks will occur. Doppler Radar is showing an area of rain over South-Central New York and Eastern Pennsylvania moving rapidly east-northeast at 800 AM and may affect the region in the morning if it holds together before potential clearing in the afternoon. If the clearing occurs as expected, wind shear will be more than sufficient for isolated to scattered strong to severe thunderstorms..
..SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton are likely Thursday Afternoon and Evening..
..This will be the last complete coordination message on today’s severe weather 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 and SPC Day-1 Convective Outlook:
