Hello to all…

..Another coastal storm system is on track to bring another round of strong to possibly damaging winds and heavy rainfall of 1-2″ with the potential for urban and poor drainage flooding to possibly small river and stream flooding. There may also be a brief period of snow and ice at the onset in the higher elevations of northwest New England..
..A High Wind Warning is now in effect from 10 AM-2 PM for Nantucket Island for sustained winds of 25-30 MPH with gusts to 60 MPH. A Wind Advisory is now in effect from 10 AM-4 PM Tuesday for Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard for sustained winds of 15-25 MPH with gusts to 50 MPH. Other portions of South Coastal New England could see wind gusts to 40 MPH around late morning through mid-afternoon today. Another round of strong to damaging winds are possible Wednesday in Central and Eastern New England..
..A Flood Watch is now in effect for Southern Bristol and Southern Plymouth Counties of Massachusetts and Kent, Bristol, Washington and Newport Counties of Rhode Island for 1-2″ of rainfall with isolated higher amounts leading to the potential for urban and poor drainage flooding and possibly some small river and stream flooding..
..SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the storm system for Tuesday Morning into Tuesday Night possibly extending into Wednesday..

Another coastal storm system will affect the region with heavy rainfall and strong to damaging winds. The headlines depict the latest thinking and include the addition of a Flood Watch for the Fall River, New Bedford, Wareham area of South Coastal Massachusetts and Central and Southern Rhode Island. The strong to damaging wind potential still looks most likely across Cape Cod and the Islands with wind gusts possibly reaching 40 MPH elsewhere in Southeast New England. There will also be another pulse of strong to possibly damaging winds later Tuesday Evening through Wednesday Morning over parts of Southern New England. Wind Advisories may be posted for other parts of Southern New England for later Tuesday into Wednesday in addition to the first round of winds during the day Tuesday.

SKYWARN Self-Activation will monitor the storm system for Tuesday Morning into Tuesday Night possibly extending into Wednesday. Another coordination message will be posted by 10 PM Tuesday Evening as needed for any wind headlines for Tuesday Night into Wednesday.
