Weather Alert: Coastal Storm Wednesday Thru Friday

Weather Now

We are still expecting an extended stretch of stormy weather from Wednesday through Friday. An ocean storm will strengthen as it stalls to our south. The greatest impact looks to be Wednesday night into Thursday and Friday as the storm drifts closer to us. In fact, conditions similar to a nor’easter look likely, including:

  • Heavy rain (1-3″ Rhode Island, 2-4″ southeastern Mass/Cape)
  • Strong east-northeast wind gusts (30-40 mph inland, 40-55 mph coast)
  • High seas…Strong beach surf and rip currents
  • Beach erosion

The height of the storm in terms of rain and wind looks to be later Wednesday night into all of Thursday and Friday morning. Coastal areas will see the strongest wind gusts
