Storm Coordination Message #1 – Late Friday Night 6/16/23 Through Saturday 6/17/23 Heavy Rainfall Potential

Hello to all…

..A general soaking rainfall is expected across Southern New England late Friday Night through Saturday Night with improving conditions for Sunday. A general rainfall of 0.50-2.00″ of rain in the region is likely across Southern New England with portions of Rhode Island and Southeast Massachusetts seeing localized amounts of 2-3″+ depending on if heavier downpours and embedded thunderstorms train over a given area. This rainfall may cause localized urban and poor drainage flooding in areas that receive the highest rainfall amounts..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor for rain gauge and any flooding reports later tonight and especially Saturday. This will be the only coordination message unless a significant upgrade to the situation occurs and time allows for an update. Below is the NWS Boston/Norton Area Forecast Discussion, Enhanced Hazardous Weather Outlook and Rainfall Infographic..
