The towns of West Tisbury, Chilmark and Aquinnah are opening a single cooling shelter at the West Tisbury Library today and tomorrow.

The first full day of the Memorial Day weekend was a washout on the Vineyard, with buckets of rain flooding roads and turning streams into mini rushing rivers. The National Weather Service reported 3.37 inches of rainfall in Edgartown. A backyard weather station in West Tisbury reported four inches.

This has been one of the coldest and rainiest springs in recent memory in the Northeast. Now forecasters say get ready for an active hurricane season.

Stormy weather Friday caused downed tree limbs, scattered power outages and ferry cancellations, and kept Island police departments busy.

The National Weather Service has issued a high wind warning for the Cape and Islands from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.

On Monday night at the West Tisbury Library, Dr. Peter Neilley spoke about our changing climate, its impact on our Island and how modern weather and climate forecasts are made.
