Wind and Rain to Create Saturday Washout on Cape & Islands

HYANNIS – A wet and windy nor’easter is expected to impact Cape Cod and the Islands on Saturday.

The National Weather Service said widespread rainfall totals of 1 to 2 inches are forecast.

There could be locally higher amounts of 2-4 inches possible, especially across southeastern Massachusetts.

Northeast winds gusting to 30-45 MPH are likely with gusts of up to 60 MPH possible along the immediate south and southeast coasts, including the Cape and Islands.

The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency said beach erosion and widespread minor coastal flooding is forecast along the coast from the North Shore to Cape Cod.

Flooding is not expected to occur during the high tide late Saturday night, which is about one foot lower than the Saturday afternoon high tide.

Winds and seas are expected to subside Saturday night.

A high wind watch is in effect through Saturday evening.
