Atlanta Weather | Rain For Us, Noreaster North | News
Sunny start for us today, but clouds will increase through the day as the next system moves closer to our area. High temps will reach the low 60s, but changes will come in time for Election Day. Mostly cloudy skies will keep temps cooler (high around 53), and a 50% chance for showers. Skies and temps will improve for the rest of the week.
The same system that will bring us rain Tuesday will intensify move up the east coast. Just what New York and New Jersey need after the devastation of Superstorm Sandy….more wind.
The offshore low could pack gusts up to 55 mph is in Wednesday's forecast for the New York metropolitan area and the New Jersey coastline.
This storm looks like a classic Nor'easter, coming up along the Atlantic coast, but will not be nearly as strong as Sandy but could compound the damage left by last week's superstorm. The strongest winds will likely hit eastern Long Island.
Meanwhile, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said cold temperatures mean "tens of thousands" of people whose homes were damaged by the superstorm will need other places to live.
