Severe Weather Coordination Message #2 – Monday Memorial Day 5/30/16 Severe Weather/Heavy Rainfall Potential
Hello to all…
..Memorial Day is bringing more widespread showers and the potential for an embedded thunderstorm or two with the potential for localized heavy rainfall and urban and poor drainage flooding in localized areas that receive persistent and short duration heavy rainfall. This is associated with a cold front that will capture some of the moisture from Bonnie in the South/North Carolina region. An Isolated Strong to Severe Thunderstorm risk is also possible in parts of Northwest Massachusetts with strong to damaging wind and hail as well with the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) continuing a marginal risk for severe weather for Northwest Massachusetts into Northern New England with areas west of Northwest Massachusetts most favorable depending on the amount of clearing that develops after rain moves through western areas this morning..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor conditions area wide on Memorial Day. This will be the last coordination message on the Memorial Day weather unless a significant upgrade to the situation occurs. Below is the NWS Taunton Flood Advisory Statement, Hazardous Weather Outlook and SPC Day-1 Convective Outlook..
