Apparently yesterday’s storm was named “Pax” which departed last evening in the form of a winter thunderstorm. While I will never embrace naming every weather pattern small, large or fantasy, having to dip into the celebrity baby name pool does speak to the volume of “events” we’ve seen this year.
Minutes ago I had decided to tip everyone to a High Wind Warning knowing that several of you are heading to the Cape this weekend when up popped yet another Winter Storm Watch.
The High Wind Warning is in effect from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. today. A High Wind Warning is issued when sustained winds of 40 mph or greater are expected for an hour or more. Winds out of the West may top out with gusts around the 60 mph mark.
The Winter Storm Watch, which I’ve named, is in effect from 8 a.m. Saturday through 5 a.m. Sunday. A Watch is issued when there is a potential for accumulations of 6+ inches in a 12 hour span or 12+ in 24 hours.
I’ll keep everyone up to speed as we grind through these events and for those making a run to the Cape, be safe.
