Storm Coordination Message #1 – Wednesday Evening 1/30/13 Storm Event

Hello to all..

..Strong to Damaging Winds and heavy showers and even an isolated thunderstorm or two will affect portions of Southern New England Wednesday Evening..
..A High Wind Watch is in effect from Wednesday Evening through late Wednesday Night for South Coastal Massachusetts and Rhode Island including Cape Cod and the Islands and Eastern Plymouth County Massachusetts for sustained southerly winds of 30-40 MPH with gusts to 55-60 MPH. These winds may cause isolated to scatterred pockets of tree and wire damage and isolated power outages. Wind Advisories may be required for other parts of Southern New England as we get closer to this storm event..
..Rainfall from heavy rain showers and isolated thunderstorms will likely be 1-2″ and may cause pockets of urban and poor drainage flooding..
..SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton are possible to likely Wednesday Evening..

Warmer temperatures will move into the region as we get into Wednesday with the potential for temperatures to rise well into the 50s to possibly even 60 degrees in some locations. A strong cold front will then approach the region as we get into Wednesday Evening. There will be very strong winds aloft in the atmosphere but a temperature inversion will inhibit some of the strong winds from reaching the surface. Nonetheless, along coastal and higher terrain locations in Southern New England, strong to damaging winds are possible and a High Wind Watch has been posted for South Coastal Massachusetts and Rhode Island and Cape Cod and the Islands including Eastern Plymouth County Massachusetts as this is the most likely area to see strong to damaging winds. Wind Advisories may be required for other higher terrain locations of Southern New England as we get closer to this storm event.

Brief heavy rainfall with a convective line of heavy rain showers and possibly even a thunderstorm or two will bring 1-2 inches of rain and the possibility of pockets of urban and poor drainage flooding. These showers and an isolated thunderstorm may also bring stronger winds down to the surface.

SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton are possible to likely Wednesday Evening for this storm event. The next coordination message will be issued by 1130 PM Tuesday Evening. Below is the NWS Taunton High Wind Watch Statement and Hazardous Weather Outlook:
