Storm Coordination Message – Thursday 10/27/11 Storm Event/Potential Nor’easter Event Sautday 10/29/11

Hello to all..

..Minor Coastal Flooding occurred in parts of the North Shore at the midday high tide. Rain is mixing with wet snow over portions of Northwest Massachusetts and Southwest New Hampshire..
..A Winter Weather Advisory is now in effect Cheshire, and West-Central Hillsborough Counties of New Hampshire as well as Franklin, Northern Worcester and Nortehrn Middlesex Counties of Massachusetts until 11 PM tonight for 1-3″ of wet snow with isolated 4″ amounts. Most accumulations will occur at elevations around or above 1000 feet. Areas outside of the advisory area may see some rain/wet snow mix but little to no accumulation is expected..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will be utilized to monitor rain changing over to snow and any snowfall amounts in the higher elevations..
..A larger, more potent early season nor’easter will impact the region Saturday Afternoon and especially Saturday Night. This could bring a heavy wet snow to many interior locations and due to trees still having foiliage on them this could lead to a threat for tree and power line damage. Storm coordination messages with more details on this threat will be posted during the day on Friday. SKYWARN Spotters, Amateur Radio Operators and ARES/RACES and other EMCOMM groups should begin monitoring the progress of this potential early season winter-like nor’easter..
..This will likely be the last coordination message for the Thursday storm system. Below is the NWS Taunton Winter Weather Advisory Statement and Hazardous Weather Outlook..
