Storm Coordination Message #1 – Saturday Evening 12/31/16-Sunday Morning 1/1/17 Light Snow/Strong Wind Potential

Hello to all…

..Happy New Year to all SKYWARN Spotters and Amateur Radio Operators..
..A light snow event is expected overnight in portions of interior Southern New England. With this being a busy travel time for New Year’s Eve, this short coordination message is being sent to raise awareness. A coating to 2″ of snow with isolated higher amounts to 3″ are possible across Western and Central Massachusetts. Other areas are likely to see an inch or less of snow where the precipitation is snow away from the coastal areas..
..A period of strong winds with wind gusts to around 40 MPH are possible at the coast overnight as well..
..Another storm system may bring a period of light icing followed by rain and strong winds Monday Night into Tuesday. Coordination Messages will be sent out on that system Sunday Night or Monday Morning as needed..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor for any snowfall totals, precip type change over and wind reports overnight and Sunday Morning. This will be the only coordination message on this situation unless a significant upgrade to the situation occurs. Below is the NWS Taunton Special Weather Statement, Hazardous Weather Outlook and Winter Weather Graphics..
