Storm Coordination Message #1 – Wednesday Morning 11/26/14-Thursday Morning 11/27/14 Storm Potential

Hello to all..

..Coastal Storm will affect the region Wednesday into Thanksgiving Morning with strong winds along the coast line and the potential for heavy snowfall in the interior and heavy rainfall possibly changing to snow before ending across the coastal plain north and west of the Cape Cod Canal..
..A Winter Storm Watch is in effect from Wednesday Morning into Thursday Morning for Northern Connecticut and Franklin, Hampshire, Hampden, Worcester and Northern Middlesex Counties of Massachusetts for 6″ or more of snow. Areas to the north and east could be impacted with advisory level snowfall..
..SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton likely Wednesday Morning into Thursday Morning. Specific timing of activation to be defined as we get closer to this storm event..

A coastal storm will affect one of the busiest travel days of the year with heavy snowfall in the interior and heavy rainfall changing to snow over portions of Eastern New England north and west of the Cape Cod Canal. A Winter Storm Watch is in effect from Wednesday Morning through Thursday Morning for Northern Connecticut and Western and Central Massachusetts for 6″ or more of snow. The potential exists for advisory level snows to the east of the Winter Storm Watch area. Strong winds will also be likely along coastal areas of Eastern New England.

The coastal storm is still about 2 days away and there is a wide envelope of storm tracks for the region. Changes in the storm track could affect where the rain/snow line sets up, where the strongest winds occur and where the heaviest precipitation will occur. Given the significant amount of travel being done on Monday and that confidence level is high enough for the potential of 6″ or more of snow over west-central portions of Southern New England, a Winter Storm Watch has been issued for this area. Future model runs will better pin down snowfall amounts for the region and where the rain-snow line sets up and whether it collapses east through portions of Eastern New England. These future model runs may affect where additional watches, warnings and advisories are issued and expected snowfall amounts over Southern New England.

SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton likely Wednesday Morning into Thursday Morning. Specific timing of activation to be defined as we get closer to this storm event. The next coordination message will be issued by 1130 PM Monday Evening. Below is the NWS Taunton Winter Storm Watch Statement and Hazardous Weather Outlook:
