(Email to MLBaron from Beth David Friday night 950PM) Rare rogue Thunderstorm briefly pounds Southcoast Not only was the locals caught off guard, the National Weather Service is still scratching their head on this one. A rare February thunderstorm seemed to have perked up out of nowhere last Friday night. Residents were questioning each other about seeing flashes in the partially moonlit sky but couldn?t figure it out until the rumblings of thunder could be heard as the rogue storm came overhead without warning. The small but potent storm cell passed over Southcoast at over 60 MPH, bringing nickel sized hail, strong winds and vivid lightning. ?At 930 PM EST National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated a strong thunderstorm capable of producing 40 mph wind gusts and small hail 4 miles southwest of Dartmouth... or about 11 miles southwest of New Bedford... moving east at 60 mph? This quote was the extent of the warning just 10 minutes before impact from the National Weather Service. Just for the record other parts of the Northeast were impacted by this system with pockets of severe weather from CT to NH. A strong cold front ran into a warm moist air mass in which the contrast was extreme enough to create this brief but powerful storm event. . Storm stats from westislandweather.com: Friday, Feb 18 945PM, nickel size hail reported from the Causeway. High Wind Gust: 50 MPH at 940PM, Barometer 29.19 at 935PM, .08" Rain.

    The unstable atmosphere was getting more agitated all day with increased amounts of virga that eventually reached the ground as scattered sheets of rain showers training east in a narrow corridor. As a weather spotter I sensed that an interesting weather event was imminent. I waited for over 3 hours with a front row seat on the causeway before my intuition came true - a rainbow appeared over West Island. With the sun breaking through at the end of the day and light showers still active, the ingredients of a rainbow coalesced perfectly over West Island. No two people ever see the exact same rainbow because of the precise angle, however many witnessed a double-rainbow from the causeway as it arced over the island looking east. The phenomena lasted less than 2 minutes.Visit our web site for a full collection of photos taken before, during and after this event. http://www.westislandweather.com/

    A cluster of strong storms formed off Long Island and headed directly east towards Block Island and Buzzards Bay. The cooling effect of the 64 degree water caused the cluster of thunderstorms to lose it's punch. Only a few sprinkles and rumbles of thunder about 830PM could be heard out in the distance as the remnants passed through uneventfully.http://www.westislandweather.com/
