Watching closely and hoping the boomer cells pass by dawn, the rest is just rain. Good luck.
I guess a few of us might end up in the pub slurping chowda. Hey good fishcakes and beans at the Claddaugh Rte 28 in W. Harwich (4:00 pm Sat. trad. Irish seisiun too, tis a fine pub)

John: At least you have a couple of cubans to enjoy while you gaze out the window at the downpour... 8)

The only window I'll be gazing out is my windsheild as I drive to Chatham. The weather might effect sight fishing but short of 25+knots of wind or Lightning I'll be at the light.

The Westover weather guru has assured me that this weekend will be static discharge free...a frontal passage in the Saturday small hours and then it will be cool and acceptable for outdoor activities...Chatham...showers in the morning and then clearing. Fish on!

Dawn lows on Brewster flats, Chapin (Bass Hole) - I've done these in similar winds and at least it's at your back. Even though the surface is chopped up you can sight them too.

Just another option...

Penguin? Pete are you OK. I will start using another Handle too if you keep this up. How about "Condor" or "Krishna Rama". Pete...you pick

John...
Penguin...Flightless bird...seemed appropriate...figured I'd put it in front of a sample test group and do a pole...
I'm lookin' at the big weather map and once the front goes by I suspect the winds will be 10-15 outa' the north +/-... I'm going to do a pre-dawn covert Yak attack on the inside...If I'm not at the light house at the appointed hour, I'm somewhere on the inside prospecting in the dark.
'Catch up to you later near you know where...
Coffee at CAC once the dust settles?!
