Winter Storm Watches will take effect early Thursday morning and continue through Friday morning. Additionally, Coastal Flood Warnings will be in place for 3 high tide cycles 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Thursday as well as Friday morning’s high tide around 8 a.m.

The two morning high tides are the ones we are most concerned about due to the higher astronomical tides. Seas will be reach 25-to-30 feet as well as a storm surge of 2.5-to-3 feet.


Hence, there will be major erosion and moderate to major coastal flooding during those morning high tides.

The coast will be dealing with a rain-mix throughout this storm with heavy, wet snow falling away from the coast.

The Cape and Islands will mainly be dealing with more a rain event.

A wide swath of heavy, wet snow adding up to 4-to-8+ inches will fall for most areas away from the immediate coast throughout the 36-to-48 hour event.


Conditions will gradually improve on Friday evening.

This weekend looks wonderful! It’s a sure sign of Spring!!!

Saturday will be partly cloudy with highs near 50, while Sunday will be mostly sunny with highs in the lower 50s!

Halfway there…
