Hello to all..

..Isolated to Scattered Strong thunderstorms possible today across interior Southern New England during the afternoon and early evening hours. Heavy downpours with urban and poor drainage flooding and lightning are the main threats but strong winds and hail could occur in the strongest thunderstorms. This same potential exists on Sunday confined to Western and Central parts of Southern New England with the potential for more widespread heavy downpours and convective showers and thunderstorms Monday as a cold front interacts with Tropical Depression Two on Memorial Day..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the strong thunderstorm potential for Saturday. SKYWARN Self-Activation will likely be needed again on Sunday and Monday and will be detailed in future coordination messages. This will be the only coordination message for today’s strong thunderstorm activity unless a significant upgrade to the situation occurs. Below is the NWS Taunton Hazardous Weather Outlook..
