During late tonight and Wed, northeast wind gusts of 25 to 35 mph are expected across RI and southeast MA. Over the Cape and Islands, stronger wind gusts of 40 to over 50 mph are anticipated. The slides below have some additional details.

There is a chance for rain across much of the area during tonight into Wed morning.
