The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency issued a Situational Awareness Statement Tuesday outlining severe weather that will likely hit the Tri-Town on Wednesday night. The storm, which is caused largely in part by a cold front making its way to the area, could cause strong damaging winds, locally heavy rainfall, dense fog and high seas.
Sustained winds of 30-40 MPH and gusts of 50-60 MPH are possible. Also, the area could see up to 1-2 inches of rain. Afternoon thunderstorms on Wednesday are also possible. A Storm Watch has also been posted for coastal waters due to the increased possibility of gale force winds and high seas.
