Hello to all…

..Strong Winds are expected this Sunday morning through evening across the Southern New England with the strongest winds over the higher terrain hill towns of Western Massachusetts as well as Cape Cod and the Islands. A few scattered snow showers and possibly even snow squalls are possible across portions of Western and Central Massachusetts and Northern Connecticut that could cause isolated slippery conditions as we get into later this Sunday Morning through Evening with a quick coating to 1″ of snow accumulation with isolated higher amounts if they persist over a given localized location..
..A Wind Advisory is in effect through 10 PM Sunday Evening for Western Franklin, Western Hampshire, Western Hampden Counties of Western Massachusetts and Cape Cod and the Islands for sustained winds 15-25 MPH with gusts up to 50 MPH. Areas outside of the wind advisory area could see wind gusts of around 40 MPH with isolated higher gusts. These winds could cause isolated pockets of tree and wire damage and isolated power outages..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the strong wind and snow squall potential for Sunday. This will be the only coordination message as we shift into operations mode unless a significant upgrade to the situation occurs and time allows for an update.
