Our Nor'easter continues hold its grip on us.After snow and blowing snow last evening and during the night,it has changed to rain now.I ended up with a couple of inches,but there are many areas around us that had 6-8 inches of heavy wet snow.
Currently raining,with temps around 35,but the wind is blowing 15 to 30 with some higher gusts,wind chills in the 20's.Should all wind down this evening.A couple of fairly cool days and nights Friday and Saturday,before a big warmup into the 60's Sunday and Monday.Then a cold front comes through late Tuesday to get us back to normal.
Election is done with,continous political ads done with,political backstabbing done with,now we get back to government infighting and nothing ever gets done.different day,same story.
Anyway we have more important things to worry about,like a strong nor'easter heading our way with strong winds,some heavy rain,and inland snow and ice.Should be moving north as the day progresses.
Happy election day!!!
Beautiful,but cold weather today.Stopped to vote before going to work and already long lines.Good news that we will get a good turnout.
The effects of our nor'easter seem to be lessening as models move the storm farther east,Cape Cod and the islands may get the worst of the winds.Also the farther east brings colder temps down,so we all may get a period of snow when the precip starts.As much as 1-2 inches.We'll see.
So we start a new week,but as with last week,we have the potential another major storm.This one won't be anything like Sandy,thankfully,but it will be a major nor'easter with very strong winds and coastal erosion,and heavy rains.
People in the northeast have to be prepared for more power outages and possible flooding conditions.Along the coast winds could be as high as 50-60 wind gusts.Even inland we could see 40-50 mph wind gusts.Those poor people along the NJ and NY coasts could see more flooding as the shoreland has been changed completely and any kind of storm surge and high waves will be an issue.
This is going to be a slow mover once it gets up here.starting along Wednesday early along the mid-atlantic and southern new england coast over spreading the whole northeast wednesday afternoon and night.Strongest winds will be Wednesday and wednesday night.
Those of us who are storm weary should get a break starting late Friday into next week.
