Storm Coordination Message #2 – Monday 11/18/19 Coastal Storm Potential

Hello to all…

..Coastal storm will bring a period of icing to portions of the interior, periods of rain with rainfall amounts of 0.50-1.5″ with isolated higher amounts possible, strong winds along the immediate coast and a period of minor coastal flooding at the time of the Monday Afternoon high tide..
..A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 12 PM Monday for Eastern Franklin and Northern Worcester Counties of Massachusetts for a light glaze of icing. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 6 AM Tuesday Morning for Western Franklin and Western Hampshire Counties of Massachusetts for a light glaze to a few hundredths of an inch of ice and a coating to an inch of snow ..
..A Wind Advisory remains in effect through 5 PM Monday Evening for Cape Cod and the Islands except Block Island RI where the advisory is in effect until 2 PM Monday Afternoon for sustained winds of 25-35 MPH with gusts to 50 MPH. Areas just outside of the Wind Advisory in Southeast Coastal New England may gust to around 40 MPH today. The winds may cause isolated pockets of tree and wire damage and isolated power outages. The lack of leaves on the trees should reduce the impact of these winds..
..A Coastal Flood Advisory remains in effect from 2-5 PM Monday Afternoon for Eastern Essex, Suffolk, Eastern Norfolk, Eastern Plymouth, Barnstable Counties and Nantucket Island for minor coastal flooding of most vulnerable shore roads at the time of high tide Monday..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the various facets of this storm early Monday Morning through Monday Evening..

A coastal storm will track close enough to Southern New England to bring some light icing to some interior locations, a period of rainfall to much of Southern New England, strong winds at the coast and minor coastal flooding at the time of high tide along East Coastal Massachusetts, Cape Cod and the Islands. The headlines depict the latest thinking. Key factors include:

1.) Wind should gust to Wind Advisory levels across Cape Cod and the Islands with wind gusts around 40 MPH possible along southeast coastal New England.
2.) Winter Weather Advisories remain in effect for the Northern and Western parts of Massachusetts for light icing. Along the east slopes of the Berkshires this could extend into early Tuesday Morning. Winter Weather Advisories for other parts of the area north and west of Boston to Providence expired at 9 AM ET.
3.) Minor coastal flooding along the most vulnerable shore road areas is possible and will bear watching during the Monday Afternoon high tide cycle.

SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the various facets of this storm early Monday Morning through Monday Evening. This will be the last message on this storm event unless a significant upgrade to the situation occurs.
