Weather Blog: Strong winds continue to hammer the region.


Good morning! We have been talking about it all week, and it is finally here. Our first powerful nor’easter hs brought the region gusty winds and heavy rain!

As you head out the door this morning, grab all the rain gear- rain jacket, umbrella, boots! It’s a soggy day!

Ponding on the roadways, hydroplaning, even slippery leaves are all creating problems during this morning’s commute, not to mention the gusty winds rocking the car back and forth on the highway!

With peak wind gusts between 25-35mph… and gusting even higher in some spots it’s no wonder many folks are waking up without power this morning.
