Big Storm Heading Our Way

Storm Warning And More!

I hope you enjoyed the warm weather, because we're paying for it tonight as a big, megalopolis-sized storm, uhm, storms into the Cape Cod region.

We have a series of advisories in place, including a Storm Warning, a High Wind Warning, a Coastal Flood Statement, and- as if that wasn't enough- a Dense Fog Warning.

Winds will gust past 50 mph after 10 PM tonight, and heavy rain will give us a good soaking. The winds will kick up a lot of surf, and minor splashover is possible during the next two high tides. Nothing major, but keep your head up. The South Coast is in greater danger of it than the South Shore or Outer Cape.

The storm should last most of Thursday, which will also be the last of our 50 degree January Thaw days. We'll get an inch of rain, but it's too warm for snow. We could see some snow on Friday, but it's just going to be a flurry or two.
