Severe Weather Coordination Message #1 – Thursday 9/26/19 Severe Weather Potential

Hello to all…

..Strong Wind Gusts in convective heavier showers and isolated strong to possibly even a severe thunderstorm is possible across Southern New England late this afternoon through early this evening. Lightning and other risks are low but strong winds in the upper level of the atmosphere and ahead of a cold front and any convective showers and thunderstorms may allow for strong winds to transport down to the surface allowing for isolated tree and power line damage and isolated power outages..
..The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has placed parts of Connecticut, Rhode Island and Southeast Massachusetts in a marginal risk for severe weather today..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor this potential for late Thursday Afternoon and evening. This will be the only coordination message posted on this potential unless a significant upgrade to the situation occurs and time allows for an update. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Hazardous Weather Outlook, Enhanced Hazardous Weather Outlook and SPC Day-1 Convective Outlook..
