Storm Coordination Message #1 – Wednesday Evening 2/15/17-Thursday Morning 2/16/17 Winter Storm Potential

Hello to all…

..A storm system looks to impact portions of Maine and New Hampshire with the possibility of impacts in the North Shore of Massachusetts and the possibility to a lesser extent of impacts in other parts of Northern Massachusetts..
..A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for Essex County Massachusetts from 7 PM this Wednesday Evening through Thursday Morning for 4-6″ of snow with isolated higher amounts. The snow has the potential to be heavy and wet clinging to trees and power lines so if these amounts occur, isolated to scattered pockets of tree and wire damage and isolated power outages could occur. Other parts of Northern Massachusetts could see advisory level snowfall. The forecast is lower confidence despite being a short-term forecast as just a small track error of 25-50 miles can be the difference of heavier snowfall in northern portions of our area versus a lighter snowfall..
..Wind Advisories maybe requires for portions of Cape Cod and the Islands Thursday..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor this storm system tonight into Thursday. A more complete coordination message will follow by 11 PM Wednesday Night. Below is the NWS Taunton Winter Storm Watch Statement, Hazardous Weather Outlook and Winter Weather Graphics..
