Storm Coordination Message #2 – Monday 12/6/21 Strong Winds and Isolated Strong to Severe Thunderstorm Potential

Hello to all…

..A strong frontal system will bring unseasonably mild conditions but also strong to damaging winds and even the low potential for an isolated strong to severe thunderstorm with strong to damaging winds and hail as the primary threats. Any thunderstorm threat will be contingent on whether the cold front brings convective showers and thunderstorms sufficient to bring stronger winds down to the surface. A Special Weather Statement for strong wind gusts associated with the cold front has been issued..
..A Wind Advisory remains in effect through 1 AM Tuesday for South Coastal Massachusetts and Rhode Island including Eastern Plymouth County and Cape Cod and the Islands for sustained winds of 20-30 MPH with gusts to 50 MPH likely. These winds will cause isolated to scattered pockets of tree and power line damage and power outages. The extent of these winds in the advisory area and possibly areas north and west of the Wind Advisory area will hinge on ability for strong winds to reach the surface, how warm temperatures get and convective showers and any thunderstorms bringing winds to the surface..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor strong to damaging wind and thunderstorm potential Monday Afternoon into Monday Night. This will be the last coordination message as we shift into operations mode. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Wind Advisory Statement, Special Weather Statement on Strong Wind Gusts and Area Forecast Discussion..
