Hello to all…

..Isolated to Scattered Strong to Severe Thunderstorms possible to likely today particularly in Western and Central Massachusetts and North-Central Connecticut anytime after 4 PM Saturday Afternoon lasting through late Saturday evening. Strong to damaging winds, hail, frequent lightning and heavy downpours with urban and poor drainage flooding are the main threats. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has again placed Western & Central Massachusetts, Western & Central Connecticut in a marginal to slight risk for severe weather today..
..SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton will commence by 330 PM today..

Isolated strong to severe thunderstorms caused pockets of tree and wire damage and urban and poor drainage flooding across portions of Western and Central Massachusetts and Western and Central Connecticut late Friday Afternoon and Friday Evening.

For today, there is reasonable heating and destabilization occurring across Southern New England, away from the south coast and its marine influence. Wind shear values are slightly stronger today than Friday as well. This will set the stage for another round of isolated to scattered strong to severe thunderstorms across Western and Central Massachusetts and North-Central Connecticut. The coverage will likely be similar to or maybe slightly more than Friday provided impulses in the atmosphere are timed near or slightly after peak heating and heating and destabilization can continue through the first half of the afternoon hours. The headlines of the coordination message cover the situation well.

SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton will commence by 330 PM today. This will be the only coordination message on today’s severe weather potential. Below is the SPC Day-1 Convective Outlook, NWS Taunton Hazardous Weather Outlook and Experimental Enhanced Hazardous Weather Outlook:
