Flood/Severe Weather Coordination Message #1 – Monday 9/5/11 Flood/Severe Weather Threat

Hello to all..

..Heavy Rainfall from showers and thunderstorms with a low probability of an isolated strong or severe thunderstorm later Monday Afternoon and Evening across portions of Southern New England..
..A Flash Food Watch is in effect from 2 PM Monday Afternoon through Tuesday Morning for Northern Connecticut, Western Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire. A slow moving cold front will push further east causing heavy rainfall in showers and thunderstorms and this slow moving cold front combined with moisture from Hurricane Irene from last week will cause the potential for flash flooding in the watch area. The region east of the Flash Flood Watch should monitor the potential for flooding but the issues will be greatest in the Flash Flood Watch area..
..If enough instability develops, an isolated strong to severe thunderstorm could occur in interior Southern New England with damaging wind and large hail but the main threat with thunderstorms will be heavy rainfall..
..SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton are possible this afternoon and evening or into Tuesday Morning depending on the heavy rainfall threat and if areal county flood warnings are issued. Another coordination message will be issued this evening. Below is the NWS Taunton Flood Watch Statement, Hazardous Weather Outlook and SPC Day-1 Convective Outlook..
