Storm Coordination Message #2 – September 6th, 2011 Flood Threat

Hello to all..

..Heavy Rainfall from showers and thunderstorms may cause flooding in parts of Southern New England..
..A Flash Food Watch remains in effect and has been extended to Tuesday Afternoon 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..
..Rainfall amounts from Sunday Evening to Monday Evening have been in the area of 1.5-3″ in portions of Western and Central Franklin County Massachusetts and 2-4″ in portions of Cheshire County NH per spotter reports. Some isolated flooding issues occurred in Chesterfield New Hampshire earlier this evening..
..SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton remain possible Tuesday if areal county flood or flash flood warnings are issued. Another coordination message will be issued Tuesday by Noon to cover the threat particularly if Ops at NWS Taunton are required. Below is the NWS Taunton Flood Watch Statement and Hazardous Weather Outlook..
