Expires 12:00 PM EST on January 27, 2015


... Blizzard Warning remains in effect from 7 PM this evening to
noon EST Tuesday...

* locations... Cape Cod and the islands.

* Hazard types... heavy snow... strong winds and blizzard
conditions. Considerable blowing and drifting snow. Strong to
damaging winds.

* Accumulations... snow accumulations of around 10 to 18 inches...
with higher amounts towards the Cape Cod canal. Snowfall rates
of 2 to 4 inches will be possible at times.

* Timing... while the storm is expected late today lingering into
early Wednesday... the worst of the storm will be tonight through
Tuesday afternoon. There will be a period where heavy snow will
change over to rain... mainly during the day Tuesday... before
changing back over to snow. Especially on the outer arm of Cape
Cod.

* Impacts... heavy snow and strong winds will result in white-out
/ blizzard conditions with near zero visibility at times.
Travel will be impossible and life threatening across the
entire region. Also snow will be wet enough to result in
downed trees and power outages in addition to the hurricane
force winds.

* Winds... north-northeast 35 to 45 mph with gusts around 70 to 80
mph. The height of the winds will be late tonight into Tuesday.

* Visibilities... one quarter mile or less at times.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Blizzard Warning is issued when sustained winds or frequent
gusts over 35 mph are expected with considerable falling and/or
blowing and drifting snow. Visibilities will become poor with
whiteout conditions at times. Those venturing outdoors may become
lost or disoriented... so persons in the warning area are advised
to stay indoors.

All unnecessary travel is discouraged beginning Monday
afternoon... to allow people already on the Road to safely reach
their destination before the heavy snow begins... and to allow
snow removal equipment to begin to clear roads.





Coastal Flood Warning, Coastal Flood Watch

Statement as of 3:57 AM EST on January 26, 2015

Expires 7:00 PM EST on January 27, 2015


... Coastal Flood Warning remains in effect from 3 am to 7 am EST
Tuesday...
... Coastal Flood Watch remains in effect from Tuesday afternoon
through Tuesday evening...

* location... the eastern Massachusetts coast including Cape Cod
and Nantucket.

* Coastal flooding... moderate to isolated areas of major coastal
flooding expected along with severe beach erosion.

* Timing... during the early Tuesday morning high tide and
possibly again for the late Tuesday afternoon high tide.

* Impacts... flooding of vulnerable shore roads and basements
expected during the Tuesday early morning high tide. Some
structural damage is likely in the most vulnerable locations.
Severe beach erosion is expected for the Tuesday early morning
high tide and remains a threat for the late Tuesday afternoon
high tide. This storm has enough intensity that could cause
new inlets to be formed along barrier beaches.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal Flood Warning means that moderate or major coastal
flooding is likely. Moderate coastal flooding produces widespread
flooding of vulnerable shore roads and/or basements due to the
height of storm tide and/or wave action. Numerous Road closures
are needed. Lives may be at risk for people who put themselves in
harms way. Isolated structural damage may be observed.

Major coastal flooding is considered severe enough to cause at
least scattered structural damage along with widespread flooding
of vulnerable shore roads and/or basements. Some vulnerable
homes will be severely damaged or destroyed. Numerous roads are
impassable... some with washouts severe enough to be life-
threatening if one attempted to cross on foot or by vehicle. Some
neighborhoods will be isolated. Evacuation of some neighborhoods
may be necessary.



All tide heights are relative to mean lower low water.
Time of high total tides are approximate to the nearest hour.
