Storm/Severe Weather Coordination Message #1 – Thursday 6/9/22 Heavy Rainfall & Severe Weather Potential

Hello to all…

..Heavy Rainfall with embedded thunderstorms are likely Thursday Morning to early Afternoon. Widespread rainfall of 0.5-1.5″ of rain with isolated higher amounts are likely across Southern New England. With the recent dry weather, the rain will be beneficial but the amounts will fall over a 3-6 hour period which will increase the risk for urban/poor drainage flooding in the those typical spots in areas that get higher rates of rainfall..
..In addition, there is a risk of an isolated strong or severe thunderstorm with the morning heavy rainfall this morning into early afternoon followed by the risk of isolated strong to severe thunderstorms in Western and Central Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island during the afternoon and early evening hours with strong to damaging winds, hail, heavy rainfall and frequent lightning as the main threats. The key with any strong to severe thunderstorms with the cold front will be the ability for storms to overcome mid-level dry air to allow for the storms to be able to form..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the heavy rainfall this Thursday Morning to early afternoon for flooding and rainfall reports along with the severe weather potential throughout the day today. This will be the only coordination message on this heavy rainfall and severe weather potential. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Area Forecast Discussion and SPC Day-1 Convective Outlook..
