Severe Weather Coordination Message #1 – Tuesday 8/23/22 Heavy Rainfall & Severe Weather Potential

Hello to all…

..Another day of potentially beneficial rain, particularly for Western, Central and Northeast Massachusetts and Northern Connecticut with lesser chances but still some beneficial rain possible for Southeast New England. Similar to yesterday, general rainfall amounts will likely be from 0.10-1.00″ with isolated higher amounts of 1-3″ in those areas that get slow moving thunderstorms with heavy downpours. The downpours may lead to localized urban and poor drainage flooding. Severe weather potential is low but a slightly better chance for an isolated strong to severe thunderstorm or two over interior Southern New England with strong to damaging winds, hail, frequent lightning as secondary threats to the heavy downpours. Threat timeframe is between 2-9 PM EDT today..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor for rain gauge, flood and any severe weather reports this Tuesday Afternoon and Evening. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Area Forecast Discussion, SKYWARN and Amateur Radio log of rainfall reports and Public Information Statement on rainfall in the region..
