The main impact of Jose will be felt on Cape Cod and the Islands and will be similar to that of a strong nor`easter, with coastal flooding, beach erosion, locally heavy rainfall, and strong wind gusts. Peak wind gusts up to 60 mph are possible on the Cape and Islands with 40 to 50 mph gusts across southeast Massachusetts and southern Rhode Island. Rainfall will be heaviest on Cape Cod and Nantucket, where 2 to 4 inches is possible.
