Storm, High Wind Warnings Continue for Islands, Cape

The snow is expected to diminish in intensity this afternoon, but forecasters say winds will remain strong and gusty tonight in southeastern Massachusetts as a winter storm moves through the region.

The winter storm warning issued for today by the National Weather Service remains in effect until 7 p.m., while the high wind warning is in effect until at least 10 p.m., according to updates from the NWS.

Forecasters say the snow should taper off this afternoon but that the wind warning could be extended further and that the combination of wet snow and gusty winds could produce power outages.

At midday Sunday, Dukes County Emergency Management director Chuck Cotnoir told Patch via email that NStar reported no outages on Martha's Vineyard. 

Verizon telephone landlines, Verizon and AT&T cell service and Comcast internet and television service were all still operational on the Island, Cotnoir said.
