A few weather sites are batting word ‘nor’easter’ around for this weekend

HUDSON COUNTY — Is the word nor’easter being overused these days? On Wednesday evening, a handful of weather-focused sites cited a model that is predicting the Northeast will get a nor’easter this weekend.
Gothamist in New York put it this way: “An Arctic front is expected to arrive on Friday for a refreshing reinforcement of cold air. Where that Arctic air mass winds up on Saturday is going to determine how much snow will drop as a low pressure system moves up the coast. The forecast is very uncertain at present, with AccuWeather saying the snow will stay to our north, the National Weather Service thinking the snow will hit us, and the Weather Channel splitting the difference. If the Weather Service is right we could be in for quite a snowy and windy period from Saturday afternoon until Sunday afternoon.”
So, it might be a mess. Or maybe it will just bring some pretty flurries. Or maybe nothing will happen.
