Storm Coordination Message #2 – Sunday 10/26/19 Heavy Rain/Strong Wind/Minor Coastal Flooding Potential

Hello to all…

..Storm system on track to 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. This message represents a quick update to current thinking with few changes..
..A Wind Advisory remains 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 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 40-45 MPH during this timeframe. Westerly, RI has had wind gusts between 40-43 MPH between 9 and 11 AM this morning..
..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. This will be the last coordination message on this storm system. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Wind Advisory Statement, Coastal Flood Advisory Statement, Hazardous Weather Outlook and Enhanced Hazardous Weather Outlook..
