Bill Ryan’s report, expect significant erosion on East facing beaches.

Even though this isn’t the mother of all storms, it’s timing couldn’t be worse.

Chatham and the Outer Cape will be in the rain zone Wednesday but slight
wobbles in the storm track could bring short periods of snow. The real snow will be west of the Cape along
and west of the I-95 Corridor. A foot of snow in western MA and NW CT is not out of the
question. Precipitation begins around dawn on Wednesday, continuing
through the day, ending late Wednesday night.

Strongest winds on the Cape will be Wednesday night from the NNE. The period of high winds will be short as the storm moves off quickly. High tide in CHH is roughly 2 am on Thursday and winds will be starting to back to the NNW by then. Height of tide not extreme on Thursday am so we should skate by this
one with only ~ 6 hours of real bad pounding on east-facing beaches.

Travel on Wednesday anywhere along the I-95 Corridor, by air or surface, will be atrocious.
