This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for coastal county communities of
Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Hazardous weather is not expected at this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday.

Monday night through Wednesday...

There is a risk of COASTAL FLOODING, especially along the eastern
Massachusetts coastline.

A persistent easterly wind flow combined with astronomically high
tides will bring onshore swells beginning late Monday night through
Wednesday. This will produce a surge of up to around 1 foot. At a
minimum, splashover is expected along vulnerable shore roads, however
such roads may become inundated.

In addition, with moderate to heavy rain forecast, especially Tuesday
night through Wednesday, there is the possibility of POOR DRAINAGE
FLOODING for all coastline communities at periods of high tide.

Wednesday night...

There is the risk of LOCALLY DENSE FOG with visibilities of a half
mile or less.


Spotter activation is not expected at this time.
