The Steamship Authority added extra service to its Tuesday schedule in anticipation of service disruptions late today, one of the busiest travel days of the year.
The National Weather Service has issued a high wind watch from 2 pm, Wednesday until 1 am, Thursday, the SSA said in an email alert sent out Tuesday morning.
“Based on the current forecast, the Steamship Authority anticipates service disruptions Wednesday afternoon and evening,” the SSA wrote. Customers were advised to check the SSA website, www.steamshipauthority.com, for updates.
The National Weather Service said that while the chief impact of this storm is expected to be heavy snow, northeast to north winds gusting up to 60 mph are possible across the Cape and Islands.
