Satellite image of impending nor'easter

The gathering storm at 10:15 a.m. From GOES-R.

Yep, a nor'easter's a-brewin' off our coast and will smack into us starting tonight - but don't worry, we're just talking rain here, not snow - although possibly 1 to 2 inches. The National Weather Service concludes:

Bullseye will pass across central and eastern areas, then will shift NE over E coastal areas Sunday morning. May see poor drainage and urban flooding in some normally prone areas.
