Storm at Sea
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Cool start, cool finish. Felt every part of October today. And like a typical October, coastal storms are churning along the Eastern Seaboard:
Lot of texture to that storm. It means there are a lot different winds feeding into it, and plenty of moisture. Winds have been cranking across the Mid-Atlantic states. Gusts have been as high as 50+ at times!
So, is it time to brace for a mighty nor'easter?
Hardly. Since the storm center never makes it here, we will stay on the sidelines of this game. At times, the wind may gust to 20-30mph on the Cape/Islands on Friday - and that will kick up the seas/surf. But as far as coastal flooding and deep gouges in the beaches from erosion, I don't see that happening.
Showers will reach up to us tomorrow. I'm thinking the Merrimack Valley, Southern NH and Southern ME stay high and dry for most of the day. If you see showers, they'll be into the night Thursday and most of Friday. This area will also be the first to clear on Saturday afternoon. Rest of us will have to sit and wait for high pressure to build back in from Maine and New Brunswick to save the weekend.
And that may take a day. Give it until Sunday for the sun to take charge. And of course, that means the ALCS and the Pats are good to go!!
Way to go RED SOX!!!!
