It’s Coming, Coastal Storm is Racing Towards New England
Boston Magazine is reporting on a 3-day storm event headed our way. Get ready for some wet weather as an October Nor’easter is headed this way. You can expect plenty of rainfall and the temps are up so this, fortunately, will not be a snow event. I hope you have some sturdy umbrellas at hand because the rain will be falling steady for 3 days. It might be a great time to head to the library and check out a good book. Gather up the blankets and stay indoors for a few days.
The dramatic sunsets we have been enjoying will be hidden by deep cloud cover, but all is not lost. It appears that this storm will be with us through Friday but maybe the weekend won’t be a washout. The storm will produce periods of heavy rain and strong winds. Boston could see wind gusts up to 45 miles per hour. Boston Magazine predicts that Southeastern Mass, the Cape, and Islands could experience steady winds of 20-40 miles per hour with gusts of up to 60 miles per hour.
The worst should be coming on Thursday afternoon. Prepare your commute accordingly, as the ferries on the Vineyard and Nantucket will likely not operate Thursday and driving in heavy rain causes numerous delays and increased traffic jams. Take cover and stay indoors if possible, if not, let’s be careful out there!
