Storm Coordination Message #1 – Monday 1/3/22 Winter Storm Potential for Southeast New England
Hello to all…
..A coastal storm will track south and east of Southern New England but may track far enough north for accumulating snow in Southeast New England and particularly Cape Cod and the Islands. Models are struggling with the northward extent of the storm and a difference of 25-50 miles north or south could be the difference between southeast parts of New England getting a coating to 1 inch of snow versus as much as 6″ or more of snow. Areas north of a Westerly to Bristol to Taunton to Plymouth line are likely to see little to no snow from this storm event at this time..
..A Winter Storm Warning is now in effect from 9 AM Monday Morning through 9 PM Monday Evening for Nantucket for 4-7″ of snow and wind gusts to 35-40 MPH with isolated higher gusts possible. A Winter Weather Advisory is now in effect from 9 AM Monday Morning through 9 PM Monday Evening for Cape Cod and Marthas Vineyard for 2-5″ of snow. Areas from Westerly to Newport to Taunton to Plymouth could receive a coating to 2″ of snow with the highest amounts along the immediate south coast of Massachusetts and Rhode Island..
..A Coastal Flood Advisory is now in effect from 9 AM-2 PM Monday for East Coastal Massachusetts and Cape Cod and the Islands for minor coastal flooding of shore roads at the time of high tide for late morning/early afternoon Monday..
..A more significant widespread coastal storm may impact Southern New England towards Friday. Coordination messages on this storm system if the threat materializes will likely start Wednesday Evening..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor for snowfall reports in Southeast New England. This will be the last coordination message on this storm event unless a significant upgrade to the situation occurs and time allows for an update.
