Storm Coordination Message #1 – Wednesday Night 2/20/19-Thursday Morning 2/21/19

Hello to all…

..Storm system will create a wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain, which will change to rain along and southeast of a Boston to Providence line in Southeast New England tonight into Thursday Morning..
..A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from 7 PM Wednesday Evening to 7 AM Thursday Morning for the entire NWS Boston/Norton coverage area except for Cape Cod and the Islands for up to 2″ of snow and a trace to one-tenth inch of icing creating slippery travel conditions..
..There is the potential for minor coastal flooding at the time of the midday Thursday high tide in East Coastal Massachusetts due to the high astronomical tide cycle despite winds that are not very strong..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation with Amateur Radio Call-up nets will monitor the wintry mix tonight into early Thursday Morning. SKYWARN Self-activation will also monitor the minor coastal flood potential for the midday Thursday high tide. This will likely be the only coordination message on this storm unless a significant upgrade to the situation has occurred and time allows for an update.
