Nor’easter likely to hit US over the next week

Published on : Tuesday, October 26, 2021

New England is in for a pummeling over the next two days, all thanks to a classic autumn Nor’easter.


The National Weather Service branch in Boston is predicting the worst weather Tuesday night into Wednesday, with heavy wind beginning Tuesday afternoon.




After one of the wettest summers ever in the Boston area, October has been spectacular.


The wind with this event could reach 75 mph in parts of extreme southeastern Massachusetts and could easily top 50 mph across the rest of Eastern Massachusetts.





The effects of the wind and the damage caused are often exacerbated in October with many leaves still on the trees.

There’s a big difference between 50-75 mph wind in October and say November or December when the leaves are all on the ground.





By late Wednesday afternoon the winds will have peaked and will gradually (slowly) come down with each passing hour. By 8 p.m. Wednesday, coastal gusts should peak out around 40 mph and inland between 20-30 mph.




Beyond that, things quiet down Thursday and Friday. The winds remain a bit busy Thursday near the coast but below damaging thresholds.


Then our attention turns to the next storm, in part, the remnants from the storm that has been battering the West Coast over the last few days.
Right now it doesn’t appear to be anywhere near as strong or concerning as storm No. 1. more on that storm later this week.
