Watches & Warnings

High Surf Advisory
Issued: 4:16 PM EDT Sep. 26, 2017 – National Weather Service

... High surf advisory now in effect until 6 PM EDT Thursday...

* location... ocean exposed beaches on the south coasts of
Massachusetts and Rhode Island including Cape Cod and the
islands.

* Timing... through Thursday.

* Surf and rip current risk... long period southerly swells from
distant Hurricane Maria will result in high surf and a high risk
of dangerous rip currents through Wednesday. Swell heights of 7
to 11 ft with periods of 10 to 15 seconds will continue through
Thursday.

* Shoreline impacts... viewers of large surf should stay in safe
areas well away from possible splashover. Individual waves may
be more than twice the average wave height... which can sweep a
person into the water from what may seem to be a safe viewing
area. Falling into turbulent and sometimes Rocky Waters can
result in injury that reduces the chance of survival. Large
breakers on area beaches along with some minor beach erosion.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A rip current... sometimes mistakenly called an undertow... is a
strong but narrow current of water flowing from the beach to the
surf zone. It can rapidly carry a swimmer into deeper water... and
exhaust an individual trying to swim against it.

In addition... viewers of large surf should stay in safe areas
well away from possible splashover. Individual waves may be more
than twice the average wave height... which can sweep a person
into the water from what may seem to be a safe viewing area.
Falling into turbulent and sometimes Rocky Waters can result in
injury that reduces the chance of survival.

Special Statement
Issued: 4:10 PM EDT Sep. 26, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Areas of fog expected to develop overnight and become locally
dense...

Areas of fog will develop around or after midnight tonight across
central and eastern Massachusetts into Rhode Island. Some of the
fog may become locally dense, with visibility reduced to one
quarter of a mile or less at times, especially along coastal
areas. This will result in hazardous driving conditions that may
linger into the early part of the Wednesday morning commute.

Motorists should be extra cautious overnight into early Wednesday
morning, drive with low beam headlights and watch out for rapidly
changing visibility.
