Severe Weather Coordination Message #1 – Tuesday Afternoon & Evening 8/2/22 – Severe Weather Potential

Hello to all…

..Most thunderstorms will be of the non-severe general thunderstorm variety but an isolated strong to severe thunderstorm is also possible across interior Southern New England particularly Western and Central Massachusetts and Northern Connecticut for this Tuesday Afternoon and Evening between around 2-8 PM. Strong to damaging winds, hail, frequent lightning and heavy downpours would be the main threats..
..Weak shear and other instability parameters will keep any severe weather potential isolated but a few isolated locations could see a strong to severe thunderstorm enough to post a coordination message on the potential. The strong to severe thunderstorms are likely to be of the marginal, pulse-type variety..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the severe weather potential for this Tuesday Afternoon and Evening. This will be the only coordination message as we move into monitoring mode. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Area Forecast Discussion..
