Nor’easter is Here

November 7, 2012

So what is a Nor’easter?

Here in the Eastern U.S.A. they can occur anytime from October and April when there’s plenty of moisture and cold air. Like tonight, they bring heavy rain and snow and sometimes hurricane-force winds and rough surf that can cause coastal flooding.

It is named for winds that blow in from the northeast and send the storm up the gulf stream.
