First Nor’easter of the Season is Coming Right at Us this Weekend
If you're like many of us, the first word that pops into your mind when you hear nor'easter is...SNOW! But, this storm coming at us this weekend, even though it will be a nor'easter will bring potentially 1 or 2 inches of rain to some areas of New England.
According to WBZ-TV Meteorologist, Barry Burbank, Saturday is going to be nasty. He says in the beginning stages of this weekend storm, the temperatures might be cold enough to initially support some of the white stuff in higher elevation locations in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont. But, for the majority of us, this will be a rain event.
Keep an eye on the tides as well. High Tide is expected in the early morning and early afternoon hours both Saturday and Sunday. There could be some minor coastal flooding. Also, as with any nor'easter, which is defined by Dictionary.com as any wind or gale from the northeast, gusty winds are expected, so make sure to prepare yourself and your home.
