Storm Coordination Message #1 – Late Tuesday Night 4/2/19 Through Wednesday Morning 4/3/19

Hello to all…

..Model uncertainty higher than normal in the short-term on a coastal storm affecting Eastern and possibly Central portions of Southern New England with strong winds at the coast and then across much of the area as the storm departs, heavy rain in Southeast New England and even some accumulating snow during the morning hours Wednesday. The following represents current thinking with some changes possible if the storm track is closer than current expectations..
..Strong winds across the Cape and Islands and Southeast Coastal New England may reach 45 MPH and could exceed 45 MPH with heavy rainfall with more widespread strong winds in the region as the storm departs. Heavy rainfall of 1-2″ is possible in Southeast New England with lesser amounts elsewhere..
..The hills of Central Massachusetts, Northwest Rhode Island and Northeast Connecticut will see a coating to 2″ of snow where the wet snow is heaviest and mostly on grassy surfaces with the wet snow occurring between Midnight to 9 AM Wednesday..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the coastal storm conditions for late Tuesday Night through Wednesday Morning. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Hazardous Weather Outlook and Enhanced Hazardous Weather Outlook..
