THURSDAY AFTERNOON, EVENING:
The beat goes on for Friday. This storm is stuck in the North Atlantic and will wrap around itself before slowly departing late Friday and Friday night.
The rain will be steadiest and heaviest over eastern MA. Rainfall totals for Thursday and Friday will likely top 1″ along coastal MA and then decrease as you head west. 2-day total of more than 1″ of rain is possible. The amounts will decrease significantly as you head west.
Winds will also be strongest on Cape Cod and the Islands, with gusts 40-50 mph possible by Friday and Friday night. In addition, some minor coastal flooding is possible in eastern MA as those gusty northeast winds push water along the shore.
WIND GUSTS BY FRIDAY AFTERNOON
As the storm moves away this weekend, skies will brighten up and temperatures will start to moderate. We’re expecting highs to be near 60 by Monday and Tuesday.
