Hello to all..

..Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all SKYWARN Spotters and Amateur Radio Operators..
..A Light Snowstorm is likely to bring a ‘White Christmas’ to much of Southern New England away from Cape Cod and the Islands and possibly some other parts of south coastal Massachusetts/Rhode Island based on storm intensity/track and amount of cold air available. Snowfall amounts are expected to be 1-3″ with isolated higher amounts of up to 4″ north of the Massachusetts Turnpike..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will be utilized to gather snowfall amounts during this storm event. The next coordination message for the Christmas Eve Night/Christmas Day storm event will be posted by 11 AM Monday Morning..
..Another more powerful storm is expected late Wednesday Afternoon into Thursday. Details for this storm are uncertain but SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton are possible during this time period. Coordination Messages for this storm system will likely be issued by Christmas Night. Below is the NWS Taunton Hazardous Weather Outlook and NWS Taunton snow graphic map for the 12/24/12-12/25/12 storm event..
