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

* CHANGES TO WATCHES AND WARNINGS:
    - The Tropical Storm Watch has been upgraded to a Tropical Storm
      Warning for northern Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

* CURRENT WATCHES AND WARNINGS:
    - A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for northern Connecticut,
      Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

* STORM INFORMATION:
    - About 950 miles southwest of Boston MA or about 870 miles
      south-southwest of Hartford CT
    - 30.7N 80.1W
    - Storm Intensity 70 mph
    - Movement North or 360 degrees at 13 mph

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

Tropical Storm Isaias is expected to quickly track through southeast
New York and western New England Tuesday evening before heading into
northern New England. Most of the storm`s impacts will occur during
about a 6 hour period early Tuesday night.

Strong southerly winds gusting to 40 to 60 mph may be capable of
downing some trees and power lines. There is also the possibility of
an isolated tornado. Rainfall totals of 1 to 3 inches are expected,
with the higher totals closer to the Berkshires, where minor urban or
poor drainage flooding may occur. It`s possible that parts of Rhode
Island and eastern Massachusetts receive less than one inch of rain.

Minor coastal flooding may impact south coastal Rhode Island and
Massachusetts during high tide Tuesday evening. Inundation would be
less than one foot above ground level if it were to occur.

Rough surf and an increased risk of dangerous rip currents should
affect south coastal beaches Tuesday and at least into Wednesday.

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

* WIND:
Protect against dangerous wind having possible significant impacts
across southern New England. Potential impacts in this area include:
    - Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater
      numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several
      fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban or
      heavily wooded places.
    - Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent
      in areas with above ground lines.

* SURGE:
Only minor impacts are anticipated at this time across primarily the
south coastal areas of Southern New England. This would occur during
the Tuesday Evening high tide. Inundation would be less than 1 foot
above ground level.

* FLOODING RAIN:
Protect against dangerous rainfall flooding having possible significant
impacts across far western portions of Massachusetts and northern
Connecticut. Potential impacts include:
    - Small streams, creeks and ditches may overflow.
    - Several places may experience expanded areas of rapid inundation
      at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage areas. Some
      streets and parking lots take on moving water as storm drains and
      retention ponds overflow. Driving conditions become hazardous.
      Some road and bridge closures.


* TORNADOES:
Protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts
across Southern New England. Potential impacts include:
    - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power
      and communications disruptions.
    - Large tree tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees
      knocked over and minor damage to roofs.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS
----------------------------------

* EVACUATIONS:
Listen to local official for recommended preparedness actions,
including possible evacuation. If ordered to evacuate, do so
immediately.


* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:
Now is the time to complete all preparations to protect life and
property in accordance with your emergency plan. Ensure you are in a
safe location before the onset of strong winds or possible flooding.

It is important to remain calm, informed, and focused during an
emergency. Be patient and helpful with those you encounter.


Closely monitor weather.gov, NOAA Weather radio or local news outlets
for official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes
to the forecast. Ensure you have multiple ways to receive weather
warnings.
