A storm will spin up along the New England coast at midweek and will take on characteristics of a nor’easter with drenching wind-swept rain and coastal flooding in some locations.
Several days of rainy, windy and unsettled weather conditions are in store this week for the northeastern United States from Virginia to Maine and into Canada from New Brunswick and Nova Scotia to Prince Edward Island and southeastern Quebec.
The worst of the storm will be Wednesday into Thursday in the U.S. and Thursday into Friday in the maritime provinces of Canada.
It may become too windy for umbrellas to be of much use in New England on north, where the heaviest rain and strongest winds will occur. The combination of rain and wind can cause travel problems. Wind gusts can top 40 mph (65 kph) in these areas.
