Severe Weather Coordination Message #2 – Saturday 3/26/22 Convective Shower & Strong Thunderstorm Potential

Hello to all…

..Strong convective showers and thunderstorms on track for Saturday late morning through early evening across much of Southern New England. Strong winds, small hail and/or graupel, frequent lightning and heavy rainfall are the main threats with an isolated severe thunderstorm with isolated large hail and/or damaging winds is a secondary threat..
..Cold temperatures aloft coupled with heating through the day along with a strong impulse in the atmosphere will set the stage for these convective showers and thunderstorms in the region. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has much of Southern New England in a general risk for thunderstorms today with an isolated thunderstorm or two possibly reaching severe limits..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the convective showers and thunderstorms during late Saturday Morning through early Saturday Evening. This will be the last coordination message for this event as we shift into operations mode. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Area Forecast Discussion and the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) Day-1 Convective Outlook..
