Via the Boston.com article Earl Bears Down by Andrew Ryan and Eric Moskowitz:
Hurricane Earl swelled yesterday into a massive storm almost the size of New England, swirling north up the Eastern Seaboard on a track expected to take it perilously close to Nantucket around midnight tonight.
Forecasters expect the full fury of the storm to pass just southeast of Nantucket as a Category 1 or 2 storm, enveloping the island, Martha’s Vineyard, Cape Cod, and portions of Southeastern Massachusetts in hurricane-force winds gusting up to 100 miles per hour and bringing possible flash floods.
Here's hoping that folks in New England are taking care to be safe and batten down the hatches.
What's the weather like where you are?
