Models now have the potential storm well offshore for next weekend, but it's still 7 days away:
After some of the model runs from yesterday showed the potential storm for next Saturday night into Sunday being a fairly close call for Long Island and eastern New England, there has been a significant shift offshore in the overnight runs (see 1st and 2nd images). However, there is still plenty of time for changes.
After some rain for this afternoon into tomorrow morning for Long Island, the Arctic blast will arrive tomorrow night with possible flurries or snow showers. So, Tuesday morning will be frigid with wind chill temperatures near zero with wind gusts as high as 40 mph.
