NEW INFORMATION
---------------

* CHANGES TO WATCHES AND WARNINGS:
    - None

* CURRENT WATCHES AND WARNINGS:
    - A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Barnstable MA, Block
      Island RI, Dukes MA, and Nantucket MA

* STORM INFORMATION:
    - About 150 miles southeast of Nantucket MA
    - 39.5N 68.4W
    - Storm Intensity 50 mph
    - Movement West or 270 degrees at 2 mph

SITUATION OVERVIEW
------------------

Post-Tropical Storm Jose will meander southeast of Nantucket into the
weekend while slowly weakening.

Strong winds gusting to 40 to 50 mph overnight will gradually diminish
Friday and Saturday. Minor coastal flooding is possible through the
Friday high tide cycle, with pockets of moderate flooding possible on
Nantucket. Severe beach erosion will continue over the next several
tide cycles.

The marine community will continue to feel the highest impacts with
life-threatening conditions continuing on the coastal waters southeast
of New England through Friday, with seas up to 20 feet and tropical
storm force wind gusts.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS
-----------------

* WIND:
Strong winds are ongoing across Cape Cod and the Islands.

Potential impacts include:
    - Some tree limbs or even whole trees will be snapped or uprooted.
    - Some roads impassable from large debris especially in heavily
      wooded places.
    - Scattered power and communications outages.

* SURGE:
Protect against locally hazardous surge having possible limited
impacts, especially on Nantucket through the Friday midday high tide

Potential impacts in these ares include:
    - Localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along
      immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots.
    - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become overspread
      with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous in places where
      surge water covers the road.
    - Significant beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes,
      mainly in usually vulnerable locations. Strong rip currents. The
      threat for beach erosion, high surf and dangerous rip currents
      is expected to linger into the weekend, with a chance for it to
      last until early next week.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS
