Hello to all..

..Near Record Warmth on Thursday but strong to isolated damaging winds expected ahead of cold front that will move through the area.

..A Wind Advisory is now in effect from 9 AM Thursday to 2 AM Friday for the entire NWS Taunton County Warning Area except for Cheshire County NH for sustained winds of 10-25 MPH with gusts to 45-50 MPH except over Southeast Massachusetts and Rhode Island including Cape Cod and the Islands where sustained winds of 25-35 MPH with gusts up to 55 MPH are likely and this area could see a few wind gusts to High Wind Warning criteria (58 MPH or Greater)..
..At this time SKYWARN Self-Activation remains likely. Ops at NWS Taunton remain possible if a greater threat for higher winds exist during a portion of the Wind Advisory timeframe over a portion of the area. This will be the last complete coordination message on this event. A shortened coordination message will be issued if time allows and Ops at NWS Taunton are initiated.
