October 3 Ian Nor’easter: Rain And Wind Advisories: New Beach Flood Video From Ocean City
October 3, 2022
Monday Morning Update
The Ghost of former Hurricane Ian continues now as a stalled Nor’easter off the Mid Atlantic coast. It reformed yesterday and will continue to hit us a little longer with steady rain, gusty winds, and coastal flooding.
Additional rain totals are still high, and the winds this morning have upgraded the Wind Warning on the Bay Bridge to ‘Limited Restriction”. This means no empty box trailers can pass. We have a look at the live radar and wind forecast below.
The steady onshore flow has been expected to chomp away with more beach erosion, but it has also led to high water. Let’s start with new flood video:

Morning Surface Weather
The Ghost of Ian continues as a stalled Nor’easter off the coast. This is why the winds will increase, the rain will enhance, and the temps will remain chilly in the 40s to near 50ºF.
*I am storing this in my Atmospheric Memory File for potential repeat in the winter.
Not much movement on the thermometers again today. Plan for a wet day with mid 40s to lower 50s in the afternoon.
Morning Wind Gusts (as of 6 AM)
8 AM Mon to 8 PM Mon
The winds continue from the North and Northeast. They will be stronger in the morning, then ease in the afternoon around the Bay…. But remain brisk along the ocean beaches.
Compare the Live Radar to the simulation below

The weather MUST be better then.
Wind 8 AM Mon to 8 PM Wed
Low Pressure continues to spin off the east coast, even retrograding closer on Tuesday. Then it finally pulls away and fades on Wednesday. Yes, this Nor’easter has been born from the remains of former Hurricane Ian.
Additional Rainfall Through Wednesday
Around 1 inch in central Maryland to 4 inches or more by the beaches.
Temps may remain nearly the same as Monday afternoon.
A little improvement, but still about 10 degrees cooler than normal.
7 Day Forecast
Temps remain chilly with the storm, but as soon as the sun returns we will warm up to the 70s for the end of the work week. Then the next cool down will arrive, while remaining dry next weekend.
