Storm Coordination Message #1 – Late Tuesday Night 11/26/13-Wednesday 11/27/13 Strong Coastal Storm Event

Hello to all..

..Strong Coastal Storm Will Impact Southern New England and much of the Northeast and Eastern Seaboard this Wednesday on the busiest travel day of the year. Those traveling on Wednesday should prepare ahead for potential delays due to the weather along with high traffic volume. In Southern New England, the impacts will be largely from Heavy Rainfall with urban and poor drainage flooding from a widespread 1.5-3″ of rainfall with isolated higher amounts of up to 4″ after a very brief period of snow or freezing rain at the start in far northwest areas as well as the potential for strong to damaging winds. South Coastal Massachusetts and Rhode Island may see minor splashover at the time of high tide Wednesday Afternoon. Astronomical high tide for Wednesday is low precluding a more significant threat for coastal flooding at present..
..A High Wind Watch is now in effect from late Tuesday Night to Wednesday Afternoon for Tolland and Windham Counties of Connecticut, all of Rhode Island and Central and Eastern Massachusetts for sustained winds of 25-35 MPH with gusts of 55-60 MPH. These winds will have the potential to cause pockets of tree and wire damage and power outages. Higher terrain locations west of the High Wind Watch may also see strong winds as well and this will be monitored as we get closer to the storm event..
..SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton are likely starting early Wednesday Morning into Wednesday Afternoon. Another coordination message will follow by 10 AM Tuesday. Below is the NWS Taunton High Wind Watch Statement and Hazardous Weather Outlook..
