Severe Weather Coordination Message #1 – Friday 6/4/21 Severe Weather Potential

Hello to all…

..Isolated to Scattered Strong to possibly severe thunderstorms are possible today particularly in Western, and Central Massachusetts and Northern Connecticut and possibly into Northwest Rhode Island. Strong to damaging winds and heavy downpours leading to urban and poor drainage flooding are the main threats with hail as a secondary threat. Timeframe for the severe weather potential is after 12 PM today and especially in the 2-8 PM timeframe..
..Potential is contingent on sufficient clearing to allow for destabilization and satellite imagery shows partial clearing developing in western areas along with how well instability overlaps stronger wind field aloft to allow for isolated to scattered strong to severe thunderstorms to develop..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the severe weather potential this Friday Afternoon and Evening. This will be the only coordination message on today’s potential unless a significant upgrade to the situation occurs and time allows for an update. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Area Forecast Discussion and Enhanced Hazardous Weather Outlook..
