In a similar setup to the weekend, another round of isolated to scattered strong to severe thunderstorms are likely in portions of Southern New England today anytime between 2-8 PM EDT. While much of Southern New England is in a marginal risk for severe weather, an area within the marginal risk for severe weather with higher severe weather potential is area along and south of the Mass Pike but away from the south coast of Rhode Island and Massachusetts. All areas within the marginal risk area should continue to monitor today’s potential.
For Tuesday, a strong cold front will move through the area with higher wind shear profiles. The timing of the cold front is in question and could affect instability parameters but a more widespread severe weather event is likely on Tuesday. Cold frontal timing could increase the severe weather potential if its passage is later in the afternoon. SPC has placed the area in a slight risk for severe weather for Tuesday given the potential for more widespread coverage of strong to severe thunderstorms.
SKYWARN Self-Activation will occur both Monday and Tuesday for the severe weather potential for Monday and Tuesday. The next coordination message focusing on the Tuesday severe weather potential will be posted by 1030 PM Monday evening pending how the Monday severe weather potential evolves.
