Storm Coordination Message #1 – Sunday 10/26/19 Heavy Rain/Strong Wind/Minor Coastal Flooding Potential

Hello to all…

..Storm system will bring a period of strong winds to Southeast Coastal areas and a soaking rainfall to much of Southern New England. High astronomical tides and onshore winds will bring minor coastal flooding at the time of high tide to some locations Sunday Evening and could extend into later portions of the week..
..A Wind Advisory is now in effect from 2 to 10 PM Sunday Afternoon and Evening for Cape Cod and the Islands including Block Island Rhode Island for sustained winds of 20-25 MPH with gusts to 45-50 MPH. These winds could cause isolated pockets of tree and wire damage and isolated power outages. Coastal areas near the advisory area could see wind gusts up to 40 MPH during this timeframe..
..A Coastal Flood Advisory is now in effect from 4 to 10 PM Sunday Afternoon and Evening for Eastern Kent, Bristol, Newport and Washington Counties Rhode Island for minor coastal flooding on the most vulnerable shore roads in this area at the time of the Sunday Evening high tide cycle. Any reports of coastal flooding along these vulnerable shore roads would be appreciated..
..Soaking rainfall of 0.50-2.00″ is likely across much of Southern New England. This is unlikely to cause any widespread flooding issues but nuisance localized urban or poor drainage flooding is possible in areas that have the highest rainfall amounts..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor this storm system. Another coordination message will be posted by 1000 AM Sunday Morning. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Wind Advisory Statement, Coastal Flood Advisory Statement, Hazardous Weather Outlook and Enhanced Hazardous Weather Outlook..
