…Potential for flash flooding as well as severe thunderstorms
this afternoon and evening…

A cold front will move through the area late today. Along and
ahead of it…showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop.

Some of these thunderstorms could be slow moving…and produce
very heavy rainfall over a short amount of time. This has the
possibility of leading to localized flash flooding…particularly
if it occurs over an urban area where drainage is poor.

Also…some of these storms could become severe…producing strong
wind gusts…moderate sized hail and even an isolated weak
tornado. Frequent lightning is also expected with these
storms…so those with outdoor plans should be prepared to seek
shelter quickly.

The best chances for storms will be between noon and 8 PM in NW MA
and SW NH…between 2pm and 10pm for central MA…much of CT and
RI…and after 2pm into the late evening for portions of southern
RI and southeast MA.

Hello to all..

..Isolated to Scattered Strong to Severe Thunderstorms likely across much of Southern New England Saturday Afternoon and Evening. Strong to damaging winds, hail, and urban and poor drainage flooding to flash flooding are the main threats. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has placed much of Southern New England in a Slight Risk for Severe Weather for Saturday Afternoon and Evening..
..Threat timeframe is anytime after Noon in western areas and after 400 PM in eastern areas of Southern New England..
..SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton likely anytime after Noon Saturday..

Hot and humid conditions that have moved into the area on Friday will remain over the region on Saturday. A strong cold front will then move across New England during the timeframe of peak heating Saturday. We currently expect sufficient sunshine for heating and destabilization over the region. Wind shear profiles are somewhat marginal with the stronger winds behind the front but presuming sufficient heating and destabilization, the humid air mass will promote water loading of thunderstorms should set the stage for isolated to scattered strong to severe thunderstorms with strong to damaging winds, hail and urban and poor drainage flooding to flash flooding as the primary threats. The timing of severe weather is any time after noon in western areas and after 400 PM in eastern areas of Southern New England. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has placed much of Southern New England in a Slight Risk for Severe Weather for Saturday Afternoon and Evening.

SKYWARN Activation with Ops at NWS Taunton are likely anytime after noon Saturday. Another coordination message will be issued by 10 AM Saturday Morning. Below is the NWS Taunton Hazardous Weather Outlook, SPC Day-2 Convective Outlook and NWS Taunton Facebook Graphic on this potential severe weather event:

Here we go again… more Thunderstorms on the way!
