    (Published Thursday, Oct. 10, 2019)

    A powerful ocean storm located about 200 miles southeast of Nantucket was expected to remain nearly stationary through Friday, delivering heavy bands of rain and strong winds to parts of New England. 

    A buoy operated by the National Weather Service recorded 43 mph sustained winds, gusting to 50 mph amid 27-foot waves on Thursday morning. This storm will continue to bring multiple hazards to the region including heavy rain, strong northeast winds, coastal flooding and dangerous seas.

    Most, if not all of these impacts will be felt along southeast Massachusetts. A powerful east fetch brings 50 to 60 mph wind gusts across Cape Cod and the Islands throughout the day and evening.

    Bands of heavy rainfall are likely across southeastern New England through tonight as rain bands generate over the ocean and move onshore.

    We are still expecting total rainfall of 3-6 inches, heaviest across Plymouth County to Cape Cod. Amounts will drop to less than an inch across northern Mass with less than half an inch across Northern Mass.

    Temperatures will be unseasonably cool today and Friday with highs only reaching in the 50s.

    Conditions are expected to improve Friday night as the storm finally begins to move away from the region. There could be lingering showers across eastern Massachusetts Saturday morning, with conditions improving throughout the day.

    Temperatures will be warmer in the mid 50s to low 60s. Dry conditions are forecast for Sunday with temperatures moderating into the 60s continuing into Monday on your exclusive First Alert 10-Day Forecast.
