6:48 pm
exact track really is going to be -- i guess not as important s it could have been with a much tighter storm. this is a very broad storm. as we see it wobbling around, it's got a wide field, the tropical storm force winds are going out 200 miles from the center, so there will be areas impacted. we're just going to be watching hour by hour, really almost a nw cast here over the coming days s we're seeing the bands approach the coastline. this was a 70-mile an hour tropical -- now it's a post tropical storm, it's getting soe energy from cold air aloft and the water down below and you can see the intensity ramp up over the next couple of days and that's pretty much where we stad now with 70-mile an hour. you can see why. look at all this warm water. as it gets closer to our coastline it will encounter the cooler water and that will help it weaken some. you can see the track starts to bend back to the west as it gets

high pressure to the north, low pressure over the top of it, and then if it follows this exact track it's not likely to, but i want to put this on there for yu so you can see. it's about 40 miles an hour away from nantucket as its closest approach sometime early thursda. that timing could change, but it's a general view right now. so we have the tropical storm watches in yellow, cape cod, the islands, the immediate south coast. this is the area with seeked see 50-mile an hour wind gusts late sunday into monday and that's te problem with the power lines and the trees coming down there. gusts. right around 40 miles per hour, that's the cry terrible yarr for nantucket and the vineyard where you could see some minor tree limb damage and start to see a yum of power outages. this is monday morning. lock at these wind gusts. 39 to 50 miles an hour, encompassing all of cape cod as you get down to the islands as well and even part of the immediate south coast and boston gusts of 30, that's not too far
