Storm Coordination Message #1 – Tuesday Night 10/4/22-Wednesday Morning 10/5/22 Heavy Rainfall Potential

Hello to all…

..Heavy Rainfall is expected in portions of Southeast Massachusetts through Wednesday Morning where rainfall of 1-2.5″ has already fallen in portions of Plymouth and Barnstable Counties through Tuesday Evening and an additional 1-2″ of rain with isolated higher amounts are possible. This rainfall could lead to localized urban and poor drainage flooding. Wind Gusts of 30-40 MPH with isolated higher gusts are also possible along the immediate East and South Coastal Massachusetts and South Coastal Rhode Island. A reminder that the NWS Boston/Norton Doppler Radar remains down due to scheduled maintenance..
..Given the planned radar outage, ground truth rain gauge reports will be critical to the rainfall forecast and SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor for all rain gauge reports, any flooding issues along with any wind gusts 40 MPH or greater and any isolated wind damage reports. This will be the only coordination message on this storm event unless a significant upgrade to the situation occurs and time allows for an update. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Area Forecast Discussion and Enhanced Hazardous Weather Outlook..
