...HIGH IMPACT COASTAL STORM FORECAST FOR THE NORTHEAST ON FRIDAY...
...SEVERE TO MAJOR COASTAL FLOODING FORECAST FOR NEW ENGLAND...

There is an increasing likelihood of a powerful coastal storm to 
impact the Northeastern United States by the end of the work week on 
Friday. This system is currently forecast to stall right off of Cape 
Cod for several hours creating dangerous coastal conditions with the 
potential of hurricane-force wind gusts and moderate coastal 
flooding across much of the Northeastern coastal communities 
especially in New England between Cape Cod and Portland, Maine. 

A rapid preliminary assessment of all available modeling indicates 
coastal areas of New England will reach major coastal flooding with 
water rise of 4 to 6 feet above normal tide levels, severe damage to 
coastal communities are possible.  Areas south of New England are 
currently forecast to see minor to moderate with water rise of 2 to 
3 feet above normal tide levels, locally higher amounts possible. 

There is a moderate chance across New England for near-hurricane-
force to hurricane-force wind gusts near the immediate coast, a 
Hazardous Wind Advisory or Watch might be needed by Thursday 
morning. 

Flash flooding and areal flooding associated with heavy rain from 
this system is a concern for much of the region, a current estimate 
for rainfall totals is around 2 to 4 inches region-wide. Snowfall on 
the backside of the system is possible. 

Interests across much of the Northeast should monitor the progress 
of this system.
