A NOR’EASTER MAY IMPACT OUR WEATHER DURING THE MID-WEEK PERIOD… THERE IS SOME UNCERTAINTY OF EXACTLY WHAT THE STORM’S PATH WILL BE, SO STAY TUNED

An upper-level disturbance in the Northwestern part of the nation will be diving southeast the next few days and is expected to cause the development of a coastal storm off the Southeast Coast by Tuesday. This low pressure area will intensify as it moves up the coast and may bring strong winds, coastal flooding, heavy rain, and possibly inland and high elevation snow to areas along portions of the East Coast. The exact track of this storm is not certain at this time as models differ somewhat in their forecast tracks. This is very worrisome for the folks severely affected by Hurricane Sandy. The dunes along the beaches have been eroded away in some cases and there is less of a beach in many of the those areas up north. This makes the coastal region very vulnerable to coastal flooding. This storm will have to be closely monitored over the next few days. Backing up to today (Sunday), a weak low pressure system sliding by to our south may bring a few showers. Monday should be a decent day but temperatures will be still on the cool side. Tuesday will be a transitional day as the low pressure system develops off the Carolina coast. I expect to have a special update on this system on Tuesday morning (November 6th).
