Monday Discussion: Fall is Upon Us

Cold week ahead for the region with highs struggling out of the 40’s most days although we may squeeze some low 50’s in some locations. Overall a tranquil work week with not much to discuss, that will give us lots of time to monitor the threat of a large Nor Easter that looks to impact the region for the weekend.

The remains of Pacific Hurricane Willa looks to merge with a deep trough over the NE, this will result in a rapid cyclogenesis off the east coast. The result may bring gusty winds, heavy rainfall and coastal flooding. Thanks to the deep trough in place there is some cold air available this may allow a wintry aspect to this storm as well, as of now this looks limited to the higher elevations. Either way, lots to track and we will be posting frequent updates on this storm threat.

Keep in mind that this is a very popular timeframe for massive coastal storms, lingering summer air masses clashing with advancing colder air masses with ocean surface temps still ripe for added fuel.

Stay warm friends.
