monitor products issued by your local National Weather Service
forecast office. For storm information specific to your area outside
the United States...please monitor products issued by your National
meteorological service.


Discussion and 48-hour outlook
------------------------------
at 800 PM EDT...0000 UTC...the center of Tropical Storm Irene was
located near latitude 44.1 north...longitude 72.1 west. Irene is
moving toward the north-northeast near 26 mph...43 km/h...and this
motion with a little faster forward speed is expected over the next
day or so. On the forecast track...the center of Irene will move
over eastern Canada tonight and early Monday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph...85 km/h...with higher
gusts...mainly over or near the water well to the south and east of
the center. Irene is forecast to weaken and become a Post-tropical
cyclone by tonight.

Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 320 miles...520 km
from the center. A wind gust of 67 mph...108 km/h...was recently
reported from an unofficial site on Cape Cod at Hatch Beach
Massachusetts.

Estimated minimum central pressure is 978 mb...28.88 inches.


Hazards affecting land
----------------------
storm surge...elevated water levels will persist in areas of onshore
winds along the coast from Connecticut through Maine. The highest
water levels will occur near the upper parts of bays and inlets.
Near the coast...these elevated water levels will also be
accompanied by large...destructive...and life-threatening waves.
Higher than normal astronomical tides are occurring this weekend.
Coastal and river flooding will be highest around the time of high
tide. Storm tide and surge values are very location-specific...and
users are urged to consult products issued by their local National
Weather Service offices.

Rainfall...Irene is expected to produce total rainfall accumulations
of 4 to 6 inches...with isolated maximum amounts of 8 inches...from
northeastern New York state northeastward through the northern
portion of New England. These rains...combined with heavy rains
over the past few weeks...could cause widespread flooding and
life-threatening flash floods.

Wind...tropical storm force winds will spread northward across
portions of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia tonight. Significantly
higher wind speeds are likely over areas of elevated terrain in
northern New England and eastern Canada.


Next advisory
-------------
next complete advisory...1100 PM EDT.

Great set of photos showing the flooding, thanks for sharing this. Hope you don't mind, but I shared that link in a thread on the AARoads forum after a member posted some area flood photos from the Mt. Holly area.

HURRICANE IRENE UPDATED GRAPHICS POST#1
We made it through all last night and the early morning hours without incident, right through landfall in NYC. Although we were feeling the outer bands of Irene here in the Poconos, let me tell ya the "backside" was far worse of a punch. That's when we lost power, which will be out for a predetermined amount of time, and that's when we also lost a very tall tree in our backyard that has been there my entire life. Thank goodness it didn't hit our house and thank goodness that's all we have to complain about. Very widespread damages and flooding across a vast area. Irene was not one to scoff at.

We made it through fairly well too although I am hearing from friends in Warwick, RI and Westerly where it seemed to have made quite an impact. Very sporatic problems. Many trees down and power outages. Amazing little tropical storm. LOL

Main thing in RI is that a cable company is out and their priority is the elderly (according to the radio today) because they have Emergency Response systems such as the one I work for. If these poor people needed to press their alert button today, they could not get help. this has been a huge lesson for the cable company. I have been preaching this for years that the cable companies/wireless do not have safety precautions in place for the elderly and handicapped to subscribe to these services. And it is only going to get worse before it get better.
I am through ranting. Hope everyone is safe tonight.

Latest estimates are 7-13 billion in property damage from Irene. Total economic damages could be double that.

Just think about that before you call this a "hype" storm.

Glad to see you made it through ok. Hope your employment doesn't get interrupted. If it does file that storm-related unemployment claim as soon as humanly possible. The backlog is already running 3 to 4 weeks. All of these new storm claims will only exacerbate the problem.

I think this is sad that people would actually complain that the storm was hyped. Many lives were saved because people were evacuated, etc.

The bizarre thing is that we went from the 80s to 60 degrees. It's like a fall day in RI. Yard surveyed and I lost two of my favorite trees, one a catalpa that came from my husband's grandmother's yard that has sentimental value. In the grand scheme of things....
