Storm Coordination Message #1 – Sunday 11/24/19 Coastal Storm Potential

Hello to all…

..Coastal storm system bringing a cold soaking rain of 0.50″-1.5″ with isolated higher amounts to most locations with some light snow and ice at the start and possibly some mix to snow and ice towards the end of the storm across North-Central and Northwest Massachusetts and the East Slopes of the Berkshires. Strong winds will occur as the storm continues to deepen and departs the region across East Coastal Massachusetts, Cape Cod and the Islands..
..A Wind Advisory is in effect from 5 PM Sunday Afternoon to 4 AM Monday Morning for Eastern Essex, Eastern Plymouth Counties of Massachusetts, Cape Cod and the Islands for sustained winds of 20-30 MPH with gusts to 45-50 MPH. These winds may cause isolated pockets of tree and wire damage and isolated power outages..
..Northwest and North-Central portions of Massachusetts will be monitored for any snow and ice accumulation that could occur on the back-end of the storm. At this time, accumulations of around 1″ or less are expected but there is a low chance of higher amounts if cooling occurs with heavier precipitation as the storm departs the region particularly in the higher elevations..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor storm conditions today and tonight. This will be the only coordination message on this storm system unless a significant upgrade occurs and time allows for an update. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Wind Advisory Statement, Hazardous Weather Outlook, and Enhanced Hazardous Weather Outlook..
