Forecast calls for a very blustery day
By Martin Finucane, Globe Staff
Winds gusting up to 55 miles per hour could buffet much the state tomorrow afternoon or evening, forecasters said.
The National Weather Service issued a wind advisory, saying that areas along and south of the Massachusetts Turnpike and over to the south coast would get sustained west winds of 30 miles per hour. The stronger gusts could bring down small limbs and make driving difficult, particularly for high-profile vehicles.
The forecasters also predicted isolated thunderstorms late tonight.
Meteorologist Charlie Foley says it’s unusual, but not unheard of to have the storms this month.
Massachusetts is on the edge of an “unusually huge storm” that is crossing the center of the country and moving up to Canada, he said.
“We’re seeing the fringe effects,” he said, noting that most areas will simply see showers.
