Storm Coordination Message #1 – Thursday Evening 2/20/14-Friday 2/21/14 Storm Event

Hello to all..

..Another Storm System for Tonight through Friday but a warmer system for the region..
..A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from 9 PM Thursday Evening to 10 AM Friday Morning for Southern New Hampshire and Franklin, Hampden, Hampshire, Worcester and North-Central Middlesex Counties for a period of snow and sleet changing to a period of freezing rain causing hazardous road conditions. An inch or less of snow is expected with a tenth to quarter inch of ice expected..
..As precipitation changes to rain late Friday Morning and lasts through Friday Evening, storm drains clogged with snow and areas of poor drainage could experience flooding. There is also a low possibility that ice on area rivers may move due to rainfall and icemelt causing isolated ice jam development on rivers and streams.
..Isolated strong wind gusts are possible in any convective line of heavy showers and possibly even thunderstorms that may develop and allow for stronger winds aloft to reach the surface..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor this storm system for tonight and Friday. Ops at NWS Taunton are possible during the day Friday if an increased risk for poor drainage or ice jam flooding or strong winds develops. Another coordination message will be posted by 7 PM Thursday Evening. Below is the NWS Taunton Winter Weather Advisory Statement and Hazardous Weather Outlook..
