Wind Coordination Message #2 – Sunday 11/24/13-Early Monday Morning 11/25/13 Wind Event

Hello to all..

..Bitterly Cold Air for the month of November and Strong Winds Will Impact Southern New England Sunday into early Monday Morning with a few snow showers overnight into this morning causing a dusting of snow in parts of North-Central interior Massachusetts and with a period of ocean effect snow over Outer Cape Cod..
..A Wind Advisory remains in effect through 1 AM Monday Morning for the entire NWS Taunton Coverage Area for Sustained Winds 25-35 MPH with gusts to 45-50 MPH with isolated higher wind gusts possible. These winds may cause isolated pockets of tree and wire damage and power outages. Also, the dry conditions and strong winds will pose an increased fire weather risk despite the very cold temperatures that can deter fire weather conditions. Red Flag Warnings have been posted for Rhode Island and Northern Connecticut with an elevated Fire Weather Risk statement posted for portions of Massachusetts..
..Looking ahead, a coastal storm system is looking more likely to impact Southern New England on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving which is the busiest travel day of the year. Latest model runs are starting to converge that the storm will impact Southern New England. It is looking like the storm situation will be one that is mostly rain for Southern New England though higher terrain locations in the north and west may see snow or a wintry mix before a changeover to rain. It is still a bit early to discuss impacts from this storm more specifically. As we get closer to Wednesday, future model runs should give us a better determination on potential conditions for Wednesday and coordination messages will be initiated as required for this storm event..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the strong winds throughout the day Sunday. Ops at NWS Taunton are unlikely at this time but will continue to be monitored. This will be the last coordination message on the strong winds for today unless a significant upgrade to the situation occurs. Below is the NWS Taunton Wind Advisory Statement, Red Flag Warning Statement, Special Weather Statement for Elevated Fire Weather Risk and Hazardous Weather Outlook..
