What is a Nor'easter?

A Nor'easter is a low-pressure system that moves northeast, up the east coast, hence the name.

This low-pressure system is often packed with very windy conditions.

Its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean allows for a constant reservoir of moisture which can be tapped and results in a tremendous amount of precipitation.

Many people associate a Nor'easter with winter weather, although it can also be a rain storm.
