Severe Weather/Storm Coordination Message #2 – Monday November 18th, 2013 Potential Severe Weather/High Wind Event

Hello to all..

..The Cold Front responsible for a major severe weather outbreak in the Midwest United States will move into New York and New England overnight through Monday Morning and the potential exists for a period of strong to possibly damaging winds along and ahead of a cold front early Monday Morning after 3 AM. Isolated to scattered localized pockets of wind damage are possible as the cold front moves through in a fine line of convective showers and possible thunderstorms..
..The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has continued a Slight Risk for Severe Weather across Southwest New Hampshire, Western and Central Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island and upgraded to a Slight risk for severe weather through midday Monday for the rest of Southern New England. Again, the severe weather mode would be a fine line of convective showers and/or thunderstorms that could bring stronger winds down to the surface..
..SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton will commence by 400 AM EST Monday to monitor the convective fine line moving across the region..

A major severe weather outbreak is ongoing over portions of the Ohio Valley, Midwest and Great Lakes region with widespread pockets of straightline wind damage and several large tornadoes and other smaller tornadoes over the region. This activity is now making its way into the Northeast United States this evening through early Monday Afternoon. The potential for strong winds ahead of the cold front and the potential for strong to possibly damaging winds in isolated to scattered pockets with a squall line or fine line of convective showers and/or thunderstorms with the actual cold front itself continues. Brief heavy downpours are possible as well. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has continued a Slight Risk for Severe Weather across Southwest New Hampshire, Western and Central Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island and upgraded to a Slight risk for severe weather through midday Monday for the rest of Southern New England. Despite the overnight into morning timing of the cold front and the unusual time of year for a threat of convective showers and/or thunderstorms, there will be the potential for isolated to scattered localized pockets of tree and wire damage as the front moves through overnight through midday Monday.

Given the Slight Risk for Severe Weather for our region tonight through midday Monday, SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton will commence by 400 AM EST to monitor the convective fine line moving across the region. This will be the last coordination message on this threat. Below is the NWS Taunton Hazardous Weather Outlook and SPC Day-1 and Day-2 Convective Outlooks:
