An active period of weather is again upon us in Southern New England. A storm system tonight into Tuesday Morning will bring a period of rain as well as some strong winds to the region. The headlines depict the current thinking with the key factor being how much winds reach the surface and whether they reach these expected speeds, are higher than expected, or if they are lower than expected. The current headlines depict the scenario expected.
Following that system and temperatures near record highs on Wednesday, we will have another potentially significant winter storm affect the region late Thursday Night into Friday Evening with heavy snow particularly around and north of the Mass Pike with snow and a wintry mix potential for areas south of the Mass Pike. It has the potential for 6″ or more of snow especially for areas along and north of the Mass Pike with plowable amounts of snow and some ice potential south of the Mass Pike. Winter weather headlines are likely in future updates and more details on this system will be given in future coordination messages.
SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor for measured wind gusts of 40 MPH or greater, wind damage and rainfall reports of 1″ or more tonight into Wednesday Morning. SKYWARN Self-Activation with Amateur Radio Call-Up Nets are likely for the potential winter storm for Friday. This will be the only coordination message on the Tuesday Night into Wednesday Morning event unless a significant update to the situation occurs and time allows for an update. Updates on the late Thursday Night to Friday winter storm will be posted as winter weather headlines are issued.
