Storm Coordination Message #1 – Thursday Morning 1/3/19 Light Snow/Freezing Drizzle Potential

Hello to all…

..Light snow and possibly freezing drizzle could affect portions of interior Southern New England around the Morning Commute timeframe north and west of the Hartford-Providence-Boston metro centers causing slippery travel before changing to rain shortly after the morning commute. Amounts of up to 1″ of snow and a trace of ice is expected in this area..
..From the Hartford-Providence-Boston corridor and points south, light snow will occur before changing to rain with less risk of a period of freezing drizzle. This may result in briefly slippery travel before the changeover to rain with less than 1″ of snow accumulation..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the morning commute for any snow totals and precipitation type reports. This will be the only coordination message unless a significant change to the situation occurs and time allows for an update. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Special Weather Statement, Hazardous Weather Outlook, Enhanced Hazardous Weather Outlook and Snow and Ice Maps..
