Severe Weather Coordination Message #1 – Tuesday 8/7/18 Severe Weather Potential

Hello to all…

..Isolated to Scattered Strong to Severe Thunderstorms possible this Tuesday afternoon and evening with strong to damaging winds, hail, frequent lightning and heavy rainfall leading to urban and poor drainage flooding are the primary threats. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has Western, Central and Northeast Massachusetts, Connecticut and the Northwest corner of Rhode Island in a marginal risk for severe weather..
..SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Boston/Norton started at 200 PM to monitor the threat. Coverage of strong to severe thunderstorms will be contingent on somewhat stronger wind fields aloft extending into portions of Southern New England with the intense instability currently in place. This will be the only coordination message as we are in operations mode. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Hazardous Weather Outlook, Enhanced Hazardous Weather Outlook and SPC Day-1 Convective Outlook..
