A nor'easter (also northeaster; see below) is a macro-scale cyclone.The name derives from the direction of the strongest winds that will be hitting an eastern seaboard of the northern hemisphere: as a cyclonic air mass rotates counterclockwise, winds tend to blow northeast-to-southwest over the region covered by the northwest quadrant of the cyclone.Use of the term in North America is associated with several different types of storms, some of which can form in the North Atlantic Ocean and some of which form as far south as the Gulf of Mexico.
Nor'easters tend to develop most often and most powerfully between the months of October and March, although they can (much less commonly) develop during other parts of the year as well.The susceptible regions are generally impacted by nor'easters a few times each winter.The term nor'easter came to American English by way of British English.The earliest recorded uses of the contraction nor (for north) in combinations such as nor'-east and nor-nor-west, as reported by the Oxford English Dictionary, date to the late 16th century, as in John Davis's 1594 The Seaman's Secrets: "Noreast by North raiseth a degree in sayling 24 leagues." The spelling appears, for instance, on a compass card published in 1607.Thus, the manner of pronouncing from memory the 32 points of the compass, known in maritime training as "boxing the compass", is described by Ansted with pronunciations "Nor'east (or west)," "Nor' Nor'-east (or west)," "Nor'east b' east (or west)," and so forth.
According to the OED, the first recorded use of the term "nor'easter" occurs in 1836 in a translation of Aristophanes.
