SKYWARN ACTIVATION REQUESTED - SATURDAY, DEC. 22-23, 2017


MESSAGE FROM NWS GRAY:

GYX SKYWARN Ham Operators,

There is a potential for significant amounts of freezing rain (and snow in the mountains) Saturday. We will be looking for reports, especially of freezing rain amounts. We will also take any reports you receive of snowfall amounts today, but full activation is not necessary.

Travel is expected to be hazardous Saturday, so do not travel to the office if you do not feel it is safe to do so. Activation from your home location and emailed or phone call reports are fine. Please monitor our Hazardous Weather Outlook and our Forecast Discussion for the most updated information.

 

Thank you,

NWS Gray, ME



SKYWARN activation is requested for this evening and tomorrow to monitor the potential for significant freezing rain and icing. Eric KC1HJK is currently monitoring the KQ1L system, and the 147.090 (+ / 100) repeater in Falmouth, ME for reports, so please support him by calling in your snowfall measurements and observations. If anyone else is able to, please activate local weather nets to facilitate the collection of reports and forward by phone or email.

Below is a link to the NWS Gray Hazardous Weather Outlook:
