Storm Coordination Message #1 – Wednesday 2/27/13-Thursday AM 2/28/13 Potential Storm Event

Hello to all..

..Another Winter Storm expected late Tuesday Night through early Thursday Morning..
..A Winter Storm Watch is now in effect from late Tuesday Night through Thursday Morning for Franklin, Hampshire, Western Hampden, Northern Worcester and Northern Middlesex Counties for 4-8 Inches of snow with isolated higher amounts up to 10 inches especially at elevations above 1500 feet in Western Franklin County Massachusetts and some level of ice accumulation. The snow is expected to be a heavy wet snow that may cause scattered tree and wire damage and power outages..
..A Winter Storm Watch is now in effect from late Tuesday Night through Thursday Morning for Southern New Hampshire for 4-8 Inches of snow except 8-12 inches of snow at elevations above 1200 feet. The snow will be heavy and wet and this may cause scattered tree and wire damage and power outages..
..Areas just outside of the Winter Storm Watch may see some wintry mixed precipitation before a changeover to rain..
..SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton are possible to likely for Wednesday..

Another winter storm will affect Southern New England late Tuesday Night through early Thursday Morning. The greatest uncertainty with this storm system will be temperatures over the region and how far and how quickly a warm front moves over the region and what kind of warming takes place at different levels of the atmosphere. The headlines of this coordination message capture the current potential but that potential could change as we get closer to this event. Also, there is some potential for strong winds at the coastline but this will also depend on the warming that takes place at the coastline.

SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton are possible to likely for Wednesday. Another coordination message will be posted by 830 AM Tuesday Morning for this storm threat. Below is the NWS Taunton Winter Storm Watch Statement, Hazardous Weather Outlook, and Snowfall Map:
