Storm Coordination Message #1 – Monday 8/22/22 Beneficial But Localized Heavy Rainfall Potential

Hello to all…

..Beneficial Rainfall today for portions of Southern New England. General amounts will be 0.10-1.00″ but there are and will be isolated amounts of 1-2″ of rain with even higher amounts in localized areas that receive thunderstorms and heavy downpours. Some localized urban and poor drainage flooding may occur in those areas that receive localized downpours if rainfall falls at 1″ or more in an hour or less. The severe weather potential is quite low but will be monitored in parts of Southeast New England as a warm front pushes through the area..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor for rain gauge and any flooding and other SKYWARN reportable criteria. This is the only coordination message as we shift into operations mode. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Area Forecast Discussion..
