October Ends with First Nor’easter Rapidly Developing 

After a mild October, this final week of the month packs a punch with the first nor’easter of the season. 

A powerful storm coming off the Atlantic coast will bring miserable weather to parts of the mid-Atlantic through the Northeast starting Monday night. 

This area of low pressure will be responsible for periods of heavy rain, prompting Flood Watches for portions of Connecticut, east and central New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Indiana, and Illinois. 

A Flood Watch means levels above flood stage are possible, but not certain. People living near rivers, streams, and other bodies of water should prepare for flooding.

The National Weather Service forecasts three to five inches of rain, with some areas potentially seeing an inch per hour. This heavy rainfall may result in flooding and ponding of water. 


New Jersey, Long Island, and Cape coasts will feel the first impacts Monday into Wednesday. New York City, Boston, and Washington DC will experience the heaviest rain Wednesday through Thursday, with winds moving 40-50 mph. Tomorrow.io forecasters said this storm could develop into a subtropical depression as it moves offshore Wednesday through Saturday.
