Hello to all…

..Strong to Damaging Winds expected late Sunday Night into Monday across much of Southern New England as a strong cold front moves thru the region. In addition, the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has placed Western and Central Connecticut and Southwest Massachusetts in a marginal risk for severe weather for late Sunday Afternoon & Evening with strong to damaging winds, heavy downpours and frequent lightning as the main threats. This will be contingent on instability and ability of thunderstorms to bring strong winds to the surface..
..A Wind Advisory is now in effect for the entire NWS Boston/Norton Coverage Area from 11 PM Sunday Night to 8 PM Monday Evening for sustained winds 20-30 MPH with gusts up to 55 MPH and isolated higher wind gusts to 60 MPH possible. These winds will cause isolated to scattered pockets of tree and wire damage and power outages..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the severe thunderstorm potential late Sunday Afternoon and Evening and the strong to damaging wind potential for late Sunday Night into Monday Evening. Another coordination message will be posted by 11 PM Sunday Evening if any significant changes to the situation occurs and time allows for an update.
