Potential wind advisory cold front with rain late next week followed by a 36-hour shot of cold air:
- It looks like little to no snow/ice expected on the northern and northwestern flank of the coastal storm Sunday evening into Monday in the northeast. Most of the snow and ice will be in the Appalachians off to the southwest, and it does look like it could produce a snowstorm in Nova Scotia.
- It looks like a strong storm late next week will cut up through the Great Lakes area and bring some substantial rain and wind to the northeast next Thursday night into Friday afternoon with the potential for wind gusts up to 40 to 55 mph for most of the northeast with higher gusts possible at elevation and along the coast.
- Behind the storm/cold front late next week, it looks like a 36 hour shot of cold air next Friday night into Sunday morning before it warms up on President's Day Monday with above average temperatures expected for the week.
