Storm/Severe Weather Coordination Message #1 – Late Saturday Afternoon & Evening 10/30/21 Isolated Severe Thunderstorm & Strong Wind Potential

Hello to all…

..Isolated to Scattered Strong to Severe Thunderstorms are possible in portions of Eastern Massachusetts for late Saturday Afternoon through Saturday Night timeframe in roughly the 5 PM-11 PM EDT Saturday timeframe. Strong to damaging winds are the main threat in and around any thunderstorms as a strengthening low pressure system tracks over Southern New England. Brief heavy rainfall with urban and poor drainage flooding is a secondary concern..
..Wind gusts of 30-45 MPH outside of any convection with isolated higher gusts is also possible across coastal Southern New England. These wind gusts may slow power restoration efforts from the mid-week major nor’easter and may result in some new power outages and tree and wire damage in areas that experience the strongest winds or isolated to scattered strong to severe thunderstorms..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the severe weather/strong wind potential for late Saturday Afternoon through Saturday Night. This will be the only coordination message on this weather event unless another upgrade to the situation occurs and time allows for an update..

..Post Storm Coordination Message on the major nor’easter that affected the region Tuesday Night 10/26/21-Wednesdsay Night 10/27/21 will be posted later today as time permits as we monitor the potential for strong winds and isolated to scattered strong to severe thunderstorms in Eastern Massachusetts for late Saturday Afternoon into Saturday Night. Storm photos can be sent as a reply to this message via our WX1BOX Facebook and Twitter feed and via the email address with credit given to the spotter unless otherwise indicated. We are currently working on coalescing all the storm damage photos for upload into a WX1BOX Facebook Album. Many thanks to many of you have submitted your storm damage photos, reports, and videos during and after this significant storm system…
