The National Weather Service in Taunton has issued a gale watch...

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Gale Warning means winds of 34 to 47 knots are imminent or
occurring. Operating a vessel in gale conditions requires
experience and properly equipped vessels. It is highly
recommended that mariners without the proper experience or
equipment seek safe Harbor prior to the onset of gale conditions.

A freezing spray advisory means that light to moderate
accumulation of ice is expected on vessels. Operating a vessel in
freezing spray can be hazardous. It is recommended that vessels
be prepared to take appropriate counter measures before putting
to sea or enter the advisory area. The Coast Guard urges mariners
to ensure their life saving equipment remains free of ice.

A gale watch is issued when the risk of gale force winds of 34 to
47 knots has significantly increased... but the specific timing
and/or location is still uncertain. It is intended to provide
additional lead time for mariners who may wish to consider
altering their plans.

A heavy freezing spray watch is issued when the risk of heavy
freezing spray has significantly increased... but the specific
timing and/or location is still uncertain. It is intended to
provide additional lead time for mariners who may wish to
consider altering their plans.
