Strong coastal storm set to slam the East Coast from Sunday into Monday

Source: The Washington Post




By Greg Porter October 28 at 12:05 PM

A powerful storm is poised to wallop the East Coast, and it is beginning to take shape today.

Disturbed weather currently attempting to become a named tropical system near Florida will ultimately clash with a strong cold front set to reach the East Coast by Sunday morning. These ingredients combine to fuel the development of our giant ocean storm. Expected to be very intense, some of its impacts may be equivalent to a strong tropical storm or even a Category 1 hurricane.

Wind, heavy rain, flash flooding and power outages are all in play, especially along coastal areas from the Carolinas to Maine. Given the multifaceted threat over a large area, letís take a look by region.

Mid-Atlantic

A widespread one to two inches or so of rain is expected in the Mid-Atlantic. Showers move in tonight, slowly marching from west to east and then persisting into Sunday. We canít rule out the possibility a thunderstorm, especially east of the Interstate 95 corridor. A soaking rain overspreads the entire region during the afternoon, with the heaviest rainfall probably occurring between early afternoon and a few hours around midnight.

A long duration of strong wind speeds will increase the possibility of power outages, downed trees and other minor damage throughout the Mid-Atlantic, including the D.C. area.

2. Tropical Storm Philippe has formed

and it will probably enhance the rain from the storm anticipated to form on a cold front marching east. Upstate NY & NE will probably bare the brunt of a combined system.

3. Im in the NYC area (Long Island) and we have been warned of 2-3 inches of rain with wind gusts of

up to 50 mph.
Do not look forward to loss of electricity or trees in my driveway.
Not good.

4. Take care, guys. We really appreciated firewood and

our Kindles when Irma's "remnants" took power down for over a week here. Only used them at night, of course, but when they ran out we went on a road trip. Came back when power was restored to find 3 trees down, but all on the road instead of the house, so okay.

Seriously, though, I hope everyone in the affected areas stay safe.

6. Hang tight my Yankees!!!

Get your candles, gasoline, canned beans, water.... Hang tight.

Maybe Whitefish Energy will come to your rescue to repair the power. Oh wait, that will never happen to "real" Americans.

9. Six years ago this weekend the Northeast had a bizarre blizzard, we had 25 inches of snow here....

.....and thousands of trees were lost because they still had leaves on them, and the weight of the snow on the leaves just snapped branches and trunks.

Power was out for 90% of Connecticut for about a week.

Glad this is going to be rain, not snow!

It was my wedding anniversary. And here we go again.
Just hoping everyone stays safe.
