With a tropical storm warning in effect for the next 36 hours, it appears as though Elsa is planning to fight the bridge traffic and spend the day on the Cape; Friday specifically. While it is projected that “storm force winds remain possible,” the peak wind...

Good morning and apologies for the delay. As one of the first houses to go dark and having just realized restoration of modern amenities, I can tell you that your home should be in the area of 48 degrees should you remain without power. Snowfall actually diminished...

Quarter sized snow took over for rain just over an hour ago and promises to deliver 1” – 2” per hour sooner rather than later topping out at 5” – 8” when considering the most popular guesses. This is the wet and heavy variety sticking to whatever it lands on making...

…and just for giggles, we have a high wind and coastal flood warning up that kicks off at 5 a.m. Friday and runs through 8 p.m.. Sustained winds in the 25 – 35 mph range are expected to gust upwards of 60 mph. Those having made landfall who have pulled lawn furniture...
