Storm Nicole Heads Northeast: Will It Affect Massachusetts?
Get ready, as Storm Nicole heads Northeast. Just when we are getting used to our November Summer, call Guns N Roses. It’s about to become November rain.
Will Nicole Affect Massachusetts?
According to AccuWeather:
After slamming into Florida as a hurricane and tracking across the state, Nicole’s impacts will be far from over. Nicole will track inland up the Eastern Seaboard into New England through late this week. The sprawling storm’s rainfall will be widespread, and it will even extend into Atlantic Canada over the weekend.
Here’s what we see in Florida as of Tuesday afternoon:
11/08 4pm EST: A dangerous storm surge from #Nicole is expected along much of the east coast of FL & portions of coastal GA where a Storm Surge Warning is in effect. The storm surge will be accompanied by large & damaging waves. Please listen to advice from local officials. pic.twitter.com/FMXRJEDJGq— NHC Storm Surge (@NHC_Surge) November 8, 2022
