There continues to be the potential for a Wind Advisory for Sunday evening/night for wind gusts up to 50 mph as the cold front comes through. The Euro is even showing the potential for gusts over 55 mph.
It still looks like a good chance of snow for Thanksgiving week for parts of northern and western New England and Lake Effect snow for western NY state.
