6:14 pm
is seeing not the a high impact event. but snow in the air combined with wind will produce poor visibility saturday evening and night but especially towards the cape and islands 45 to 55- mile-per-hour gusts. could rule out a few isolateed power outages and i don't think it will be a widespread issue when you have snow and wind it could create hazardous travel. a high tide before midnight on saturday night. minor coastal flooding and minor to moderate for sunday morning. mainly focusing bay side cape and sandwich towards plymouth and south shore winds coming down out of the north and east and east facing beaches could see erosion. and sunday the whole thing is moving out to sea and we get into the sunshine and low 30s and it's a comfortable end to the weekend gusty and if you are heading to ski country they are missing out and there's no snow in northern neweningland but it's been very cold and making a ton of snow. and everyone who says conditions are great temperatures in the teens to around 20 for friday and
