Severe Weather Coordination Message #1 – Saturday 8/3/19 Severe Weather Potential

Hello to all…

..Isolated to Scattered Strong to Severe thunderstorms are possible Saturday Mid-Afternoon through early Saturday Evening. Strong to damaging winds, hail, frequent lightning and heavy rainfall leading to urban and poor drainage flooding are the main threats..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the severe weather potential for Saturday Afternoon into the early evening..

An area of showers swung through Northern Massachusetts this morning with and will pass offshore of portions of Eastern Massachusetts by early afternoon with rapid clearing behind it. Additional showers and potential thunderstorms are popping up across Eastern New York and will swing through portions of Southern New England during the mid-afternoon through early evening. Instability will be sufficient for some isolated to scattered strong to severe thunderstorms despite weak wind shear profiles in the atmosphere. Coverage, however, is expected to be limited due to the weak shear.

SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the severe weather potential for Saturday Afternoon into the early evening. This will be the only coordination message as we shift into operations and monitoring mode. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Hazardous Weather Outlook:
