    Minor flooding was an issue once again Sunday morning. It appears our Nor’easter is tossing a significant swell back to shore, and we could see another high tide cycle of minor flooding, at least in pockets.

    Coastal flooding was significant and we continue to get pictures of the damage. Roads washed out, some structures destroyed and there was very significant beach erosion. Dunes took a severe beating, which is worrisome with our next Nor’easter.

    I can’t believe I’m saying this, but we are STILL dealing with the Nor’easter for another 12-18 hours. A band of light snow will move through the area from east to west Sunday night.

    Most areas will see under two inches of accumulation. With temperatures right at 32 degrees, I’m not expecting accumulations on the main roadways, but some of the back and side roads could become slick. The good news is, most of the snow will move out by the morning commute Monday.

    Tuesday, there is a break in the action. For March, the weather appears quite pleasant. We’ll see partly to mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the low 40s, which is average for this time of year.

    Another Nor’easter is on the way for Wednesday and Thursday. It’s likely that parts of New England will see significant accumulations. Most of our forecast models are onboard with a large Nor’easter, but the exact track is to be determined.

    A track closer to the coast will keep the heaviest snow over the interior, while a track farther offshore would mean major snow for the I-95 corridor and all of the major cities. Thankfully, we aren’t expecting any major coastal flooding, but there could be some nuisance flooding in the areas which were hardest hit.

    High winds are also likely at the coast. Regardless of whether we see rain or snow, there is a lot of precipitation with this next system. We will need to monitor some of the local rivers, which are running high.
