Seventy m.p.h. winds, heavy rains, and tides from three to six feet above normal will accompany Hurricane Ginny today as she sweeps up the New England Coast.
Although gale warnings and a full hurricane watch are now in effect from Block Island to Provincetown, the Boston area will not be severely affected by the storm. Winds here may exceed 45 m.p.h. but the medium to heavy rainfall should end by tonight. Skies will be partially clear on Wednesday.
