Hello to all…

..Quick hitting storm system to bring a period of heavy rainfall of around 1 to possibly 1.5″ of rain in a short period of time which could lead to nuisance urban and poor drainage flooding with the possibility of convective showers and thunderstorms bringing brief strong winds down to the surface in Southeast New England. Wind Gusts in coastal areas could be around 40 MPH for a brief period tonight, especially in the area of convective showers or thunderstorms..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor this storm system for rainfall reports and any stronger wind gusts particularly in convective showers and thunderstorms. This will be the only coordination message on this storm system unless a significant upgrade to the situation occurs.
