Hello to all..
..Isolated to Scattered Strong to Severe Thunderstorms possibly to likely today across Southern New Hampshire, Western Massachusetts and Connecticut in the mid to late afternoon timeframe. Damaging winds, large hail, and urban/poor drainage flooding are the primary threats. Isolated supercells are possible. The threat timeframe is from approximately 2-9 PM today..
..SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton will commence at 1 PM EDT today lasting through early evening..
At 905 AM, Doppler Radar indicated an area of showers moving off the south coast of Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts with another area of rain racing eastward from Central and Eastern New York that will move through Southern New England over the next 2-3 hours. Behind this area of rain, Satellite imagery as of 900 AM shows an expanding area of clearing that should move into the area. Presuming this clearing area moves over the area as modeled to allow for sufficient heating and destabilization, it will set the stage for isolated to scattered strong to severe thunderstorms across portions of Southern New Hampshire, Western Massachusetts and Connecticut in the mid to late afternoon timeframe as wind shear profiles are sufficient for severe weather development. Damaging winds, large hail and urban/poor drainage flooding are the primary threats with isolated supercells possible.
SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton will commence at 1 PM EDT today lasting through early evening. This will most likely be the last complete coordination message on this threat. Below is the NWS Taunton Special Weather Statement, Hazardous Weather Outlook and SPC Day-1 Convective Outlook:
