Showers and thunderstorms on the way

An historic blizzard is now exiting the northeastern U.S. after dumping up to 40 inches of snow in some spots along with hurricane force winds of up to 80 mph.

The next weather system to affect the tri-state moves in tonight from the Midwest.  Expect scattered rain and isolated thunderstorms as a warm front moves in.

Ahead of a cold front, widespread showers and thunderstorms will break out on Sunday, mainly between 9am and 3pm.  Heavy rainfall is possible, with 1-2 inches likely in some spots.  The severe threat still appears to be confined to our south, but we will see windy conditions as this front approaches.  Sustained winds of 15-25 mph are likely with gusts of 30-35 mph possible.

After this system moves out on Sunday night, I'm expecting a quiet Monday.  Another low to our south will graze the area on Tuesday night and Wednesday, but it will be lacking significant moisture.  Still, at least scattered rain and snow showers are possible during that time period.
