Storm Coordination Message #2 – Friday 11/1/13 Storm Event

Hello to all..

..Strong Storm System will bring strong to damaging winds to much of Southern New England and a period of heavy rainfall that may cause brief urban and poor drainage flooding particularly for leaf clogged drains and possibly enhance the strength of the winds reaching the surface..
..A Wind Advisory is now in effect from 6 AM to 6 PM Friday for the entire NWS Taunton Coverage area for sustained winds of 25-35 MPH with gusts to 50 MPH and a few higher gusts possible..
..SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton will commence at 6 AM Friday Morning into Friday Evening..

A strong storm system will track through the Great Lakes and Southeast Canada. It will bring much warmer temperatures for a period of time but also the threat of strong to damaging winds and a brief period of heavy rainfall.

A Wind Advisory is now in effect from 6 AM to 6 PM Friday for the entire NWS Taunton coverage area for sustained winds of 25-35 MPH with gusts to 50 MPH and a few higher wind gusts possible. There will be two rounds of strong to damaging winds one affecting Southeast Massachusetts and Rhode Island in the 6-8 AM Friday timeframe and then a second round of strong to to damaging winds in the late Friday Morning into Friday Afternoon timeframe over much of the area. The strong to damaging winds with trees that still have a fair number of leaves on them could cause isolated to scattered pockets of tree and wire damage and power outages. In addition, a brief period of heavy rainfall may cause brief urban and poor drainage flooding particularly for leaf clogged drains. That brief period of heavy rainfall/convective showers may also bring stronger winds down to the surface as well.

SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton will commence by 6 AM Friday Morning. This will likely be the last coordination message as we move into operations mode Friday Morning. Below is the NWS Taunton Wind Advisory Statement and Hazardous Weather Outlook:
