Just because it’s November it doesn’t mean that Hurricane Season is over. Although activity during this time of year is rare there are still 22 days before the season ends. Last week we saw a pretty heavy nor’easter roll through the area which is usual for this time of year.  The storm did quite a lot of damage in the Northeast but it also brought some real good waves. This week we’ve got the 18th named storm of the season, Tropical Storm Sean, making his way up the Atlantic.

Sean is on the weaker side, only packing winds of 45mph and it doesn’t look like he’ll get much stronger but he will be sending some waves our way over the next couple of days.

The good thing about Sean is that he should stay over water and not make landfall. He might clip Bermuda as he turns East later in the week but it shouldn’t bring more than some wind and moderate rain to the area.
