SON OF SANDY/ATHENA PM UPDATE: Nor’easter Nearing Central Mass

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

 

A nor’easter continues to intensify off the mid-Atlantic coast this afternoon. It will not be quite so intense or devastating as Sandy but nonetheless will cause a preview of winter here in Central Massachusetts.

This storm will not have the tropical connection that boosted Sandy to super-storm status but instead will be a powerful garden-variety northeaster not all that unusual from this time of year through the winter months. It will move toward New England today and slowly pass the region by later Thursday afternoon.

The air is cold enough to produce wet snow that may mix with rain for at times and could accumulate up to 2-4 over higher terrain with lesser amounts at lower elevations. Northeast winds will pick up today and tonight into Thursday morning, gusting 30-50 mph inland a perhaps to 60mph in a few gusts along the coast.

Scattered power outages are not out of the realm of possibility but should not be widespread. Tides may run 2-4 feet above normal especially early Thursday morning around the time of high tide. Once again significant beach erosion could occur leading to minor coastal flooding much less significant than occurred during Sandy. The storm should wind down slowly tomorrow afternoon.

I will continue to track the storm and keep you posted with future updates.
