Transcript for Nor’easter takes aim with heavy rain and fierce winds
Thanks very much. We turn to the nor'easter taking aim threatening to make a mess of the evening commute across the region. Several major airlines offering to waive change fees for travel in and out of the area and ginger is tracking it all and joins us now with the timing of the storm. Good morning, ginger. Good morning to you, Michael. We have already seen this storm drop 3 to 5 inches of very helpful rain southwest of Montgomery heading the drought through Georgia but, boy, is it going to come fast through tomorrow morning. That is the timing in the northeast. If you're from Pennsylvania and New Jersey over to Connecticut you'll be thinking about the rain but the wind and that's why I want to bring you to the state of New York. Use this as an example to showcase how windy and how rainy it's going to get. Let me tuck myself into the long Island sound to give you an idea. Anybody in green that floods easily, when you get 2 to 4 inches of rain falling tonight if you're driving I-87 or I-90 north of Albany, it looks like we'll get some of the heavier pockets. Now, bring that camera back out because the whole state is going to get windy and I think this is what you'll notice the most especially going into tomorrow morning. But the closer you are to the coast, the heftier the winds. I'm standing in the streamlines where the low pressure system is located but you can see them coming right over Long Island. JFK, Laguardia, both right there could easily see gusts of 40 to 50 miles per hour. Cecilia, it is not you New York, Atlantic City to Boston feeling the wins by tomorrow morning. We are bracing for it.
