Remembering 2009's nor'easter
Maryland was spared the effects of the recent nor'easter, unlike on Nov. 11, 2009, when the state was hit over several days with up to 8 inches of rain, high wind and waves. A quarter of the dune line in Ocean City was eaten away, with coastal flooding partially caused by high bay tides. This extratopical storm was called Nor'Ida or the Veterans Day storm because it formed from remnants of Hurricane Ida. When the storm was over, Marylanders again felt they had dodged a bullet. This weekend we will have much-needed sun and warmer temperatures. The normal high is 59, and the Baltimore area is forecast to reach 63 today and close to 70 on Sunday.
