Fiona intensifying again this evening, after an eyewall replacement cycle. Up to 125mph.

Some mod SW shear impeding venting on western semicircle..as indicated by lack of feathering cirrus outflow. But environment is very moist(white color in water vapor imagery, vs dry air purple) and ocean heat content pretty high. So storm should fight off the shear and slowly intensify for another day.

 

Should peak in 24-36hrs as a high end 3 or low end Cat 4, 130-140mph. 

 

After that it begins to lose a little gas(heat) and should slowly weaken.

 

Will eventually interact with a vigorous trough coming off the Northeastern US Coast and become a very powerful extratropical cyclone

Areas of Newfoundland and Nova Scotia going to get hammered. A 928/930mb low. That's silly low air pressure for a north Atlantic storm. 

 

For comparison:

Blizzard of 78... 982mb

Remember it's just fishing, no need to drown.

 

Be careful if you venture out there during the swell.

I've always wanted to see the outer cape during a storm. Maybe now is the time

Saturday morning is my only free time to fish this week. The big question is do I go to the south side of the cape for albies, a salt pond for stripers or just stay local and fish freshwater. I hate driving an hour to find an unfishable weedy ocean.

I'm gonna try and fish through it.  I'm going to a wedding on Nantucket and bringing my gear.  Might just push some topicals in who knows.

Saturday night looks to be AOK. Might be a bit of residual swell, but shouldn't be bad at all. Definitely not the same as Friday night, that's for sure

The Outer Cape beaches might be mung city, if that's where you're thinking of fishing.

I can't say this is a God's Word forecast of exactly how it plays out, but I think it's pretty close.

Friday night is the worst, with 5-7ft swells on exposed southern facing rocks and beaches. Saturday night? 2ft. And dropping.

Was thinking of trying mid cape bay side. My worry was more the seaweed and other debris, being new to fishing I’ve never gone immediately surrounding a storm but everything I had been reading made me think it would be a bad day on the water.

3 hours each way? I would just give up fishing the ocean and fish freshwater instead.
