Storm Coordination Message #1 – Weak Coastal Storm and Minor Coastal Flooding Potential

Hello to all…

..A weak coastal storm combined with the supermoon tide will bring minor coastal flooding at the time of high tide to East Coastal Massachusetts for the midday Tuesday high tide with more spotty coastal flooding in South Coastal Massachusetts and Rhode Island for the 8 AM Tuesday high tide. The coastal flooding will be due to the high tide inundating low lying areas with only modest wave action. This weak coastal storm will bring some beneficial rainfall of around 0.50″ with isolated higher amounts of around 1″ and possibly heavier downpours and some wind gusts below Wind Advisory criteria but possibly reaching 30-40 MPH in gusts along the coast..
..A Coastal Flood Advisory is in effect for Eastern Essex, Suffolk, Eastern Norfolk, Eastern Plymouth Counties of Massachusetts as well as Cape Cod and the Islands from 1000 AM to 2 PM Saturday for widespread minor coastal flooding at the time of high tide. A Coastal Flood Statement has been issued for pockets of minor coastal flooding along South Coastal Massachusetts and Rhode Island..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will be monitoring for any coastal flood reports in East Coastal Massachusetts as well as South Coastal Massachusetts and Rhode Island which are likely to reach SKYWARN Reporting thresholds. Any coastal flood photos would be greatly appreciated and can be sent via our WX1BOX Facebook and Twitter feeds, as a reply to this coordination message or to the email address pics@nsradio.org. SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor for any flooding issues from heavy rainfall or any wind issues at the coast as well but this is likely to stay below reportable thresholds. This will be the only coordination message for this storm event unless time allows and a significant upgrade to the situation occurs. Below is the NWS Taunton Coastal Flood Advisory statement and Hazardous Weather Outlook..
