“After midnight is when the wind will start to crank up and then its just going to howl throughout the day tomorrow and all the way through Saturday,” says Accuweather meteorologist Joe Lundberg. “You’ve got the danger of coastal flooding with that, maybe some beach erosion.”

The US Coast Guard is warning mariners, boaters, and watermen to use extreme caution over the next 72 hours as well. According to the National Weather Service, the storm could bring in winds of up to 65 mphs and 30 foot waves in some spots offshore.
