I continue to keep a very close eye on Hurricane Isaias as it will be moving along the East Coast of Florida on Sunday before heading northward and riding up the U.S. East Coast on Monday into Tuesday. I still think that Isaias will track over some part of Southern New England during Tuesday and Tuesday night. My thinking is for the center of Isaias to track across eastern Connecticut before moving across eastern Mass late Tuesday night. What does this mean for our weather? For Western & Central Mass, it means that rain is expected to overspread the region during Tuesday morning and become heavy at times during Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night. Rain is expected to end late Tuesday night or Wednesday morning. At this time, I think that a couple of inches of rain looks likely across Western and Central Mass. As for wind, I think that since we will be on the western side of the storm, wind will not be too much of a problem. With that said, wind gusts of 25-35 mph are possible out of the north and northeast Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night, especially in the Worcester Hills. For Coastal Southern New England, Rain and wind will gradually increase during the day on Tuesday and become a heavy wind-swept rain during Tuesday night. It currently appears that the center of Isaias will track right across southeastern Connecticut, central and northern Rhode Island and eastern Mass late Tuesday night. If this occurs, then wind gusts of up to 60 mph are possible across much of Rhode Island, eastern and southeastern Mass and the Cape. 1 to 3 inches of total rainfall is also forecast across eastern Mass and the Cape. Needless to say, I am watching Isaias extremely closely and will have additional updates for you over the next couple of days. Thank you for reading my latest forecast for Western and Central Mass.
