Statement as of 9:40 PM EDT on October 22, 2014

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on October 23, 2014


... Wind Advisory in effect until 8 am EDT Thursday...

The National Weather Service in Taunton has issued a Wind
Advisory... which is in effect until 8 am EDT Thursday.

* Location... for much eastern Massachusetts into Worcester County
and southward into northeast Connecticut and all of Rhode
Island. This includes the following cities and towns of

* Winds... north 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 45 mph.

* Timing... the strongest winds will occur tonight in heavy rain
squalls and isolated thunderstorms.

* Impacts... these strong winds may result in some downed tree
limbs and even isolated power outages. The heavy rain combined
with many fully leafed trees will likely exacerbate the
potential for downed tree limbs.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Wind Advisory is issued when sustained winds are forecast to be
31 to 39 mph or gusts will range between 46 and 57 mph. Winds
this strong are capable of Downing small tree limbs and
branches... possibly causing isolated power outages. Driving can
also be difficult... especially for high profile vehicles.





Special Statement

Statement as of 6:15 PM EDT on October 22, 2014


... Strong winds tonight across eastern Massachusetts... Rhode
Island... and southeastern New Hampshire...

Strong northeasterly winds gusting as high as 40 kts will continue
through tonight as rain moves over eastern Massachusetts... Rhode
Island... and southeastern New Hampshire. Most of these winds will
fall below Wind Advisory criteria... though a few gusts may exceed
40 kts. Aside... because of the fully leaved trees... winds up to 40
kts will be enough to bring down trees and tree limbs. In
addition... any Holiday decorations that are not tied down will
likely be blown around.
