Wind Coordination Message #1 – Saturday Evening 1/23/21-Sunday Early Afternoon 1/24/21 Strong Wind Potential

Hello to all…

..Strong wind gusts of 35-45 MPH are expected across Southern New England overnight through early Sunday Afternoon and across Cape Cod sustained winds of 20-30 MPH with gusts to 50 MPH are likely and a Wind Advisory is now in effect for Cape Cod from 3 AM-1 PM Sunday. These winds may cause isolated pockets of tree and wire damage and isolated power outages..
..The strong winds coupled with the bitter cold air will result in bitterly cold wind chills though wind chill indices will not reach Wind Chill Advisory criteria. Nonetheless, dress warmly and in layers if headed outdoors this weekend..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the strong wind potential overnight through early Sunday Afternoon. This will be the only coordination message on the wind potential unless a significant change to the situation occurs and time allows for an update. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Area Forecast Discussion, Wind Advisory Statement, Enhanced Hazardous Weather Outlook and Facebook Infographics..
