An area of low pressure located just offshore of southeast Florida
is expected to become a tropical depression or tropical storm as
it moves near or offshore of the U.S. coast from east-central
Florida to North Carolina through early next week. While it is too
soon to determine the exact track and intensity of this developing
tropical system, everyone should monitor later forecasts. At the
very least this system will generate large seas as it approaches
southern New England from the south next week.

In addition, ahead of this system large high pressure over Canada
will combine with a frontal wave south of New England this weekend to
result in fairly strong northeast winds for this time of year,
with speeds up to 30 kts. Given the long fetch seas south of
Nantucket, Marthas Vineyard and Block Island may build to 4 to 7
ft or greater Sunday. Thus exercise caution if venturing into the
southern ocean waters of Massachusetts and Rhode Island beginning
Sunday and continuing into early to middle of next week.
