Mid-week Nor’easter

Nor’Easter coming – how bad will Hoboken get hit?

I’ve been watching this whopper of a storm prediction for the past week. Up until recently, it was expected to affect mid-Atlantic states and not be much of a disruption for our area.

However, computer models are now showing a northern trend for this nor’easter, and now forecasters are suggesting we might get something to contend with.

Potential for strong Nor’easter to impact Hoboken and NYC

The National Weather Service said:

A NOR-EASTER WILL DEVELOP ALONG THE MID ATLANTIC COAST EARLY WEDNESDAY. THE STORM WILL INTENSIFY AS IT SLOWLY TRACKS EAST THROUGH THURSDAY.

FORECAST UNCERTAINTY SURROUNDS THE EXACT DETAILS OF HOW THIS STORM WILL EVOLVE, BUT THE POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR:

  • SEVERAL INCHES OF SNOW.
  • WIND GUSTS OF 50 TO 60 MPH.
  • MINOR TO MODERATE COASTAL FLOODING.
  • HIGH SURF AND SIGNIFICANT BEACH EROSION ALONG THE OCEAN FACING BEACHES AND TWIN FORKS OF LONG ISLAND.

THESE IMPACTS ARE POSSIBLE WEDNESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.

I’ve seen a wide range of forecasts from meteorologists – from “all rain,” “trace of snow,” all the way up to a foot of snow or more.

I guess we won’t know until it’s over! Good luck!

How many people won’t bother to move their cars from low-lying areas and will be confused when it floods again?
