Severe Weather Information

UPDATE JUNE 24, 2010

After the 10AM conference call National Weather Service reports a strong cold front will approach the Marshfield area after 1PM.  Thunderstorms producing strong to damaging winds, large hail and brief but heavy downpours between 3 PM and 5 PM are likely.  The Marshfield area could see winds in excess of 65MPH.  These storms have the potential to be dangerous and will pop up very quickly.  Please stay tuned to your local weather for the most up to date information.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call my office.  Thank you

****************************************************************************


We are expecting the potential for widespread severe thunderstorm activity across southern New England Thursday, mainly from around Noon through about 7 PM.  The main threat will be very damaging wind gusts, which could exceed 70 mph (because wind fields aloft will be quite strong).  Temperatures near 90 degrees are forecast with dewpoint temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s...and a cold front sweeping through the area.  Large hail and an isolated tornado are also potential threats. 

There is an additional possibility of some severe thunderstorm activity early in the morning (around daybreak) from a large complex front that's expected to form in Michigan and upstate New York.  If it holds together, it may impact Vermont and New Hampshire, more so then MA/CT/RI.  Our biggest concern, though, is the afternoon development at this point.
