Storm/Severe Weather Coordination Message #2 – Tuesday PM 10/24/17-Wednesday PM 10/25/17 – Severe Weather/Strong Wind/Heavy Rainfall Potential

Hello to all…

..A strong cold frontal system will bring an end to the milder than normal temperatures and bring with it heavy rainfall and the potential for urban and poor drainage flooding, strong to damaging winds and even the threat for isolated to scattered strong to severe thunderstorms with strong to damaging winds and heavy rainfall as the primary threats in the Tuesday Afternoon through early Wednesday Afternoon timeframe. There is a very low risk for an isolated and brief tornado in the coverage area as a secondary risk..
..A Flash Flood Watch is now in effect from Tuesday Evening through Wednesday Morning for Hartford County Connecticut and Franklin, Hampshire and Hampden Counties of Western Massachusetts for localized flash flooding of urban and poor drainage areas and flashier small streams and rivers..
..A Wind Advisory is now in effect for the entire NWS Taunton Coverage Area from Noon Tuesday to 11 AM Wednesday for sustained winds of 10-25 MPH with gusts to 50 MPH. These winds could cause isolated to scattered pockets of tree and wire damage and isolated power outages..
..The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has placed portions of Western, Central and Northeast Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island in a Marginal to Slight Risk for severe weather from Tuesday Afternoon into early Wednesday Morning and there is a marginal risk for severe weather Wednesday Morning into early Wednesday Afternoon for portions of Rhode Island and Eastern Massachusetts..
..SKYWARN Activation in some form is likely with Ops at NWS Taunton possible in the Tuesday Afternoon through early Wednesday Afternoon timeframe..

Several updates with this coordination message as confidence is growing on wind gusts up to 50 MPH with isolated higher gusts in stronger convective showers and thunderstorms as well as the potential for convective heavy rainfall in a relatively short period of time resulting in Flash Flooding. A Wind Advisory is now posted for the entire NWS Taunton Coverage area from Noon Tuesday through 11 AM Wednesday Morning along with a Flash Flood Watch for Western Massachusetts and Northwest Connecticut from Tuesday Night into Wednesday Morning. The headlines have additional info on the potential. SPC has maintained the marginal to slight risk for severe weather across portions of Southern New England in the Tuesday Afternoon to early Wednesday Afternoon timeframe.

SKYWARN Activation in some form is likely with Ops at NWS Taunton are possible in the Tuesday Afternoon through early Wednesday Afternoon timeframe. Another coordination message will be posted by 1100 AM Tuesday Morning.
