Storm Coordination Message #1 – Saturday Evening 12/1/18-Sunday Morning 12/2/18 Light Icing Potential

Hello to all…

..As SKYWARN Recognition Day 2018 winds down, we’ll monitor incing conditions during the late Saturday Evening and Sunday Morning hours in Northern and Western Massachusetts and possibly extend into Northern Connecticut..
..A Winter Weather Advisory is now in effect from 10 PM Saturday Evening through 700 AM Sunday for Eastern Franklin, Eastern Hampshire and Northern Middlesex Counties of Massachusetts and a Winter Weather Advisory is now in effect from 10 PM Saturday Evening through 1000 AM Sunday Morning for Western Franklin, Western Hampshire, Western Hampden Counties of Massachusetts for less than 1″ of snow but a trace to one-quarter inch of icing. This will create icy conditions on roadways. The icing should stay below damaging thresholds but isolated pockets of tree and wire damage is possible if icing meets or exceeds 1/4″ of icing..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor icing conditions in the Winter Weather Advisory area extending into Northwest Connecticut. This will be the only coordination message unless a significant upgrade to the situation occurs. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Winter Weather Advisory statement, Hazardous Weather Outlook, Enhanced Hazardous Weather Outlook and snow and ice maps..
