Severe Weather Coordination Message #1 – Saturday 6/6/20 – Severe Weather Potential

Hello to all…

..Isolated to Scattered Strong to Severe Thunderstorms are possible Saturday Afternoon and Evening across interior Southern New England. Strong to damaging winds, hail, frequent lightning and brief heavy downpours leading to brief urban and poor drainage flooding are the primary threats..
..Timeframe for thunderstorms will be in the Saturday early to mid-afternoon through early evening timeframe. Any isolated to scattered strong to severe thunderstorm potential will be contingent on sufficient clearing and destabilization along and ahead of a cold front, frontal timing which is currently expected to be favorable in the mid to late Saturday Afternoon timeframe and whether there will be sufficient mid-level moisture to sustain thunderstorm strength..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor severe weather potential for Saturday Afternoon and Evening. Another coordination message will be posted by 1000 AM Saturday Morning. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Area Forecast Discussion with information on the potential..
