A northeast coastal storm, known as a nor’easter, has winds that blow from a northeasterly direction over coastal areas. These storms can have impacts that are similar to a hurricane. Nor’easters typically occur between October and May. During winter months, nor’easters often occur as winter storms.
Threats from nor’easters and coastal storms include storm surge, high winds, heavy snow, heavy rainfall, inland flooding, rip currents, and beach erosion. Nor’easters can often last several days, affecting multiple tide cycles.
