Strong late-season Nor'Easter batters New England - 12:05 pm EDT
This month has turned out to be one of the coldest May's in the last century in much of New England. Just to add some icing to the cake, a very strong nor'easter just finished up smashing the New England coast. In the Boston area, this storm was the strongest late May Nor'Easter is nearly 40 years according to Walt Drag of the National Weather Service forecast office in Taunton, MA. As a disclaimer, Walt often goes a little overboard with his forecasts. There is a reason that he is in charge of forecast verification in Boston; it helps keep him somewhat planted on the ground. For those of you stuck in New England with the crappy weather, here is something to cheer you up.
