A strong cold front will bring heavy rainfall, strong to damaging winds and the potential for isolated to scattered strong to severe thunderstorms capable of damaging winds and urban and poor drainage flooding. The focus of the activity will be during Tuesday Evening lasting through Wednesday Morning. A Wind Advisory is now in effect for the entire NWS Taunton coverage area including Southern New Hampshire from 4 PM today through 6 AM Wednesday. The strongest winds are expected in the Connecticut River Valley from 4 PM to Midnight and from 7 PM to 6 AM from the Worcester hills to the coastal areas. There is the potential for isolated higher wind gusts in higher terrain and coastal locations that may reach High Wind Warning criteria and this will be monitored through the event.
The Storm Prediction Center has extended the Slight Risk area for severe thunderstorms to include much of Western and Central Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island. Isolated to Scattered strong to severe thunderstorms are possible later this evening and will be capable of damaging winds and urban and poor drainage flooding. This would likely be in a line configuration of storms affecting the area with convection capable of mixing strong winds aloft down to the surface. Other areas outside of the Slight Risk area in the NWS Taunton coverage area have the potential for an isolated to scattered strong to severe thunderstorm as well with this storm system.
SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton will commence at 6 PM ET Tuesday Evening lasting through early Wednesday Morning for this storm system. This will likely be the last coordination message on this event unless a significant change to the situation occurs.
