Nor’easter and flooding on the East Coast: Live updates


The governors of New Jersey and New York have each issued a state of emergency in advance of an anticipated nor’easter this week, which is expected to bring heavy rainfall and flooding.

“The winds are blowing all the way down toward the deep south. The winds in Boston later on tonight and overnight could be 60 to 65 miles per hour,” CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said.

There are two low pressure systems, one of which is already causing the rainfall. The other system is expected to get bigger later on Tuesday, he added.

“It may even get a little subtropical. Not going to get a name, but it’ll have a lot of warm water to work with. That’s the Gulf Stream. By tomorrow afternoon, things really get harrowing for parts of the Northeast. There will be winds on shore. There will be waves on shore — 8 to 12 feet tall. There will obviously be this rainfall coming down as well; high wind warnings are in effect for the costal areas,” Myers explained.

The only good news? “It’s not going to be a snowstorm. Because in a month or two from now, those temperatures would be in the 30s, and we’d be shoveling this,” he added.
