Strong nor'easter bearing down on Maine



Itís important to note that there are still uncertainties with timing; if the storm comes in faster, it could affect areas farther north during the evening commute, such as the Boston to Providence, Rhode Island, corridor.

That stretch of southern New England will see the greatest impacts. Sustained southerly winds of 30 mph to 40 mph with gusts to 60 mph are possible inside Interstate 495, with slightly lesser amounts to the west. The exception will be in the Worcester Hills and the Berkshires, where sporadic gusts topping 45 mph are possible.

Along the coastline, gusts of 60 mph are possible, except Cape Cod and the islands, which may see 65 mph wind gusts for a five- or six-hour window around midnight Wednesday night. Again, that timing is flexible, as is the exact track. Onshore easterly winds could cause some coastal erosion.

There is a slight risk that a narrow channel of winds in excess of 80 mph, exceeding hurricane force, could develop and target the Cape. That threat appears low right now, but is growing.
