By now, everyone is aware that we’ll be facing the threat of a potent nor’easter on Wednesday, but even as the storm time frame approaches, the models continue to throw curveballs.
While this storm will be nothing like Sandy, its main impacts will be felt along the shore with another round of rain, wind, and tidal flooding.
November is a common time for nor’easters to occur and we are currently in a classic weather pattern for them to develop.
When I learned that part of Beach Haven was breached during Monday’s first high tide, my heart sunk.
Hurricane Sandy continues to move northeast at 15 mph. The storm is expected to make landfall along the New Jersey coast late Monday night.
As Hurricane Sandy bears down on our area, there are some questions and possible misunderstandings that should be addressed.
Sandy remains a Category 1 storm with sustained winds of 75 mph. This is a very large storm with tropical storm force winds extending 520 miles from the storm’s center.
This is a very large storm with tropical storm force winds extending almost 450 miles from the storm’s center.
We’ve been enjoying a nice little blast of summer-like warmth here in the first week of October, but that’s all about to change this weekend!
Since the start of 2012, dry weather has spread across much of the Northeastern United States. Rainfall deficits have climbed above 5″ in our area but in some cities such as Boston, MA the rainfall deficit has already exceeded 7″.
Much of the United States experienced record warmth during the month of March. In all over 7,500 records were broken from Alabama to Wisconsin and some of those records were smashed by over 30 degrees.
Today marks the last day of astronomical winter across the nation, though you’d never know it step outside here in Philadelphia, with temperatures again surpassing the 70 degree mark today.
Spring-like temperatures have arrived in the Delaware Valley and if you liked today’s high of 63 degrees then you will love tomorrow as temps climb even higher.
Rumors are flying about a big weekend storm but with a snow-starved winter such as this, I’m not buying into it just yet.
1-3″, Ha! We’ve seen much worse during the month of February. In fact, on this day in 2010, Philadelphia received 15.8 inches of snow and that was less than a week after a winter storm dumped 28.5 inches of the white stuff.
