...A POTENTIAL TROPICAL STORM MAY AFFECT THE SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND
WATERS NEXT WEEK...

Developing low pressure located just offshore of southeast
Florida may become a tropical depression or tropical storm as it
moves to the North Carolina coast early in the week. While it is
too soon to determine the exact track and intensity of this
developing tropical system, the storm does look to remain well
offshore of New England as it moves northeast. Even so, everyone
should monitor later forecasts. At the very least, this system
will generate large seas as it passes offshore of the southern
New England next week.

In addition, a large high pressure over Canada will combine with
a frontal wave south of New England late this weekend to generate
fairly strong northeast winds for this time of year, with speeds
up to 30 kts, particularly across the southern outer waters.
Given the long fetch, seas south of Nantucket, Marthas Vineyard
and Block Island may build to 4 to 7 ft or greater Sunday. Thus,
exercise caution if venturing into the southern waters of
Massachusetts and Rhode Island, during the first half of this
week.
