Hurricane Nate Could Bring Rain To Dry Newtown Area

The remains of Hurricane Nate are likely to bring wet weather to the Newtown area early next week.

According to the National Weather Service, the remains of the hurricane that was in the Gulf of Mexico and headed toward the United States as of Saturday morning was expected to move through the Ohio Valley and toward Bucks County Monday and into Tuesday before heading toward Nova Scotia in Canada.

Early forecasts showed the remains of the hurricane bringing more than an inch-and-a-half to the area. Along with the rain, there is a chance tropical storm grade winds would impact the region.

The rain will come at the right time as forecasters at the National Weather Service said Lower Bucks County is about 4 inches below normal rainfall amounts over the past 30 days.

In New Orleans, officials were prepping for landfall of Hurricane Nate and ordered mandatory evacuations in some areas, according the New Orleans Advocate.
