This front won’t bring that sort of activity to our region but it will bring the potential for strong to damaging winds along and head of the front with some winds enhanced by convective showers and any thunderstorms that can form along the front despite limited instability..
..A Wind Advisory is now in effect from 1 PM Saturday Afternoon until 5 AM Sunday Morning for the entire NWS Boston/Norton coverage area for 25-35 MPH with gusts to 50 MPH and isolated higher gusts possible in any convective showers and isolated thunderstorms. These winds could cause isolated to scattered pockets of tree and wire damage and power outages..

This will be the last coordination message as we shift into operations mode unless a significant change occurs and time allows for an update.
