Nor'easter To Disrupt Clean-Up Efforts In The Northeast

Posted:

Clean up efforts in New York, New Jersey, and the rest of the northeast U.S. will be hampered by a "Nor'easter" later this week.

The three most reliable medium range forecast models, the GFS, ECMWF, & Canadian, all agree on a strong low in the Atlantic just off the northeast coast by Wednesday-Thursday. 

This could bring winds 40 mph plus along with high surf.  No, not as bad as Sandy, but an insult to injury!

Definition

Nor'easter:

A strong low pressure system that affects the Mid Atlantic and New England States. It can form over land or over the coastal waters. These winter weather events are notorious for producing heavy snow, rain, and tremendous waves that crash onto Atlantic beaches, often causing beach erosion and structural damage. Wind gusts associated with these storms can exceed hurricane force in intensity. A nor'easter gets its name from the continuously strong northeasterly winds blowing in from the ocean ahead of the storm and over the coastal areas.
