* changes to watches and warnings:
    - none

* current watches and warnings:
    - a Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Barnstable MA, Block
      Island RI, Dukes MA, eastern Plymouth MA, Nantucket MA, Newport
      RI, southern Bristol MA, southern Plymouth MA, and Washington RI

* storm information:
    - about 340 miles south-southwest of Nantucket MA
    - 36.5n 71.7w
    - storm intensity 75 mph
    - movement north or 355 degrees at 7 mph

Situation overview
------------------

Hurricane Jose is forecast to slowly weaken to a tropical storm as it
tracks about 125 miles south of Nantucket on Wednesday. The main
impact of Jose will be felt on Cape Cod and the islands and will be
similar to that of a strong Nor'easter, with coastal flooding, beach
erosion, locally heavy rainfall, and strong wind gusts.

Peak wind gusts up to 60 mph are possible on the cape and islands with
40 to 50 mph gusts across southeast Massachusetts and southern Rhode
Island. Rainfall will be heaviest on Cape Cod and Nantucket, where
2 to 4 inches is possible, with locally higher amounts on Nantucket.
Severe beach erosion will occur along the coastlines of southeast
Massachusetts and Rhode Island, with areas of minor to moderate coastal
flooding, especially Nantucket.

On the coastal waters south and southeast of New England, seas will
build to 20 feet, with up to 25 feet south of Nantucket. The
combination of high seas and strong winds will result in life-
threatening conditions.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* surge:
a storm surge of 1 to 2 feet may occur Wednesday and Wednesday night
for both south and east facing coastlines. When combined with large
wave action, this could produce localized areas of 1 to 2 feet of
inundation above ground level, especially in Nantucket Harbor where
moderate coastal flooding is forecast. Areas of minor coastal flooding
are expected along the East Coast of Massachusetts, mainly south of
Boston.

* Wind:
winds are forecast to gust to 40 to 50 mph along the Massachusetts
and Rhode Island coasts with some gusts to 60 mph possible on Cape
Cod and the islands. The peak of the wind will be Wednesday into
Wednesday night, but the strong winds may persist into Thursday over
the cape and islands. Across Cape Cod and the islands, winds may be
strong enough to knock down some trees, large branches, and power
lines. Scattered power outages may occur.

Farther inland, outside of the tropical storm force wind threat
area, because of the full foliage, there could still be some impacts
from gusty winds that could down some smaller tree limbs.

Prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
southern Rhode Island and southeast Massachusetts, especially across
Cape Cod and the islands.

* Other coastal hazards:
Jose will bring large waves, possibly over 15 feet, to ocean exposed
beaches across southeast Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Severe
beach erosion will occur. Some protective dunes may be at risk of
being overtopped or eroded away. Dangerous surf and rip currents
will occur along the entire Massachusetts and Rhode Island
coastline. It appears that later in the week, what is expected to be
Post-Tropical Storm Jose may linger well offshore of New England and
thus the threat of beach erosion and rip currents will be prolonged,
likely lasting through the upcoming weekend and perhaps even into
early next week.

* Flooding rain:
a Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for Cape Cod and Nantucket, where
2 to 4 inches of rain are possible with higher amounts possible on
Nantucket. The heaviest rain will be tonight and Wednesday. Localized
flash flooding in urban areas is possible. Farther to the west, 1 to 2
inches of rain is forecast across Rhode Island and southeast
Massachusetts. Much less rain is expected in western and central
Massachusetts and northern Connecticut. A slight shift in the track of
Jose could greatly influence the location of the heaviest rainfall.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* evacuations:
if you live in a place that is particularly vulnerable to strong wind,
such as a Mobile home or a boat, plan to move to safe shelter before
weather conditions become hazardous.

* Other preparedness information:
now is the time to bring to completion all preparations to protect your
home or business. Outside preparations should be wrapped up as soon as
possible before weather conditions deteriorate.

All mariners should be in port. Make sure that your boat is moored
very securely or remove it from the water while there is still time.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Listen for possible changes to the
forecast.

Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 11:07 AM EDT Sep. 19, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect from 6 PM EDT this evening
through Wednesday afternoon...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of southeastern Massachusetts, including the
following areas, Barnstable and Nantucket.

* From 6 PM EDT this evening through Wednesday afternoon

* Jose, currently sitting south of Nantucket will shift north,
then eastward through Wednesday. This will bring bands of heavy
rain mainly to Nantucket and Cape Cod as it makes its closest
pass overnight into early Wednesday. Continued bands of heavy
rain could lead to localized flash flooding, exacerbated by the
inability of each high tide cycle to fully drain. As much as 3
to 5 inches of rainfall is expected.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
