Skywarn Activation Requested – March 3, 2018


Good morning,

We would like to request SKYWARN activation for the nor’easter affecting the region from today through tomorrow. This storm will mainly impact southern New Hampshire and coastal Maine. Concerns along the coast include high winds which may result in downed trees and power outages, and coastal flooding. High tide is at approx 11am and 11pm today and storm surge and powerful wind and waves is expected to result in significant erosion.  In southwest New Hampshire, heavy wet snow, especially at higher elevation may lead to scattered power outages.

As always, our highest concern is your safety. Please do NOT go through any flood waters, area beaches or anywhere else where you might feel unsafe. We would appreciate any reports including post storm damage photos you may be able to get, and you are welcome to email them to us here or call ( or 207-688-3224). We would welcome anyone with interest in running a net from the office WX1GYX station, however with the late notice I realize that a net from home is probably the most practical and safe choice.

Message from Yankee Skywarn

SKYWARN activation is requested to monitor for reports of wind damage and coastal flooding. If anyone is able to, please activate local weather nets to facilitate the collection of reports and forward by phone or email. I will make an attempt to get on DMR during breaks from work, but we will need more help then that, including monitoring public service frequencies for reports of damage, closed roads, and flooding.
