The Nor'easter that will roar through the region overnight Friday through Saturday will be accompanied by heavy rain that could cause flooding and strong winds gusts that could lead to power outages.
Rain will be heavy at times on Saturday, accompanied winds of 15-25 mph with gusts of 40 and higher, along with a storm surge capable of causing coastal flooding with the high tide cycle late Saturday morning into early Saturday afternoon.
"The winds may be strong for a few hours, to break tree limbs and cause sporadic power outages," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dave Dombek.
