Severe Weather Coordination Message #1 – Friday 7/27/18 Severe Weather Potential

Hello to all…

..Another round of Isolated to Scattered Strong to Severe Thunderstorms is likely across Western and Central Massachusetts and Northern Connecticut Friday Afternoon into Friday Evening. Strong to damaging winds, hail, frequent lightning and heavy rainfall leading to urban and poor drainage flooding are the main threats. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has placed this area in a marginal to slight risk for severe weather..
..SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Boston/Norton will likely commence around 100 PM lasting through Friday Evening..

Satellite imagery shows clear conditions except for low clouds along the South Coast of Massachusetts and Rhode Island. The clear conditions should allow for heating and destabilization across the area. A cold front will approach western New England and there should be sufficient wind shear along with cooling conditions aloft and sufficient heating and destabilization to bring an isolated to scattered strong to severe thunderstorm threat to this area. The timeframe for severe weather is after 2 PM Friday through early evening. Areas of Northern Massachusetts east of the current risk areas should also likely monitor this scenario as depending on timing, strong to severe thunderstorms could move into portions of this area. The marginal and slight risks for severe weather were shifted slightly eastward into parts of Central Massachusetts and most of Northern Connecticut for this update.

SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Boston/Norton will commence by 100 PM lasting through Friday Evening. This will be the last coordination message as we move into operations mode. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Hazardous Weather Outlook, Enhanced Hazardous Weather Outlook and SPC Day-1 Convective Outlook:
