Storm Coordination Message #1 – Heavy Rainfall Event Thursday 11/10/11

Hello to all..

..Heavy Rainfall in convective showers will affect Southern New England particularly portions of Central and Eastern Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Northeast Connecticut. Rainfall of 1-3″ will be possible. Doppler Radar shows the leading edge of heavy showers just offshore and will move on shore between 8 AM and Noon from south to north. The rainfall may cause some urban and poor drainage flooding over the area in locations that receive heaviest rainfall particularly this afternoon and the evening commute..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will be utilized to handle any 2″ or more rainfall reports and flooding reports. Ops at NWS Taunton are unlikely but that will be monitored..
..This will be the only coordination message issued on this event unless an upgrade to the situation occurs. Below is the NWS Taunton Hazardous Weather Outlook..
