Nor'easter Expected to Blow Through on Wednesday
The storm could bring wind gusts of up to 50 miles per hour to the coast, though gusts won't be so strong in inland areas.
A little more than a week after 'superstorm' Sandy swept through Massachusetts, Somerville residents may have to brace for another windy, rainy night on Wednesday.
A nor'easter is expected to blow into the area mid-week and the storm could drop 1 to 2 inches of rain from Wednesday into Thursday, according to WHDH meteorologist Jeremy Rainer.
Fellow WHDH meteorologist Chris Lambert said rain and wind will come late afternoon into Thursday morning and that winds will bring gusts of 40 to 50 miles per hour to coastal areas.
The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a high wind watch Monday afternoon, saying that strong winds have the potential to bring down power lines and trees.
It'll be a chilly rain, too: The forecast is for a high near 47 on Wednesday and a low around 40 on Wednesday night, followed by a high near 49 on Thursday and a low around 38 that night.
