Talk about a “Spectacular” Bombogenesis!!! Rainfall totals from the powerful Nor’Easter ranged anywhere from 2″ to almost 6″ across Connecticut with the highest amounts in parts of southeastern Connecticut. The wind gusts were impressive 50-60 mph across parts of CT. to 90 mph at Provincetown on the Cape. 40,000 power outages across CT. with close to 250,000 outages being reported across Massachusetts. Good news is the wind will diminish tonight!! Friday will feature lots of sunshine, lighter wind and seasonable temperatures. So far the weekend looks good, however, eyes are on a developing Tropical Storm in the Gulf of Mexico. Tropical Storm Warnings are posted for the Gulf coast from Louisiana to Florida. The remnant low will track off the mid-Atlantic coast over the weekend and could spread lots of clouds across Southern New England on Sunday. The rain should stay to our south!!!
