From New England Across the Mid-Atlantic Region:
Heavy rain leading to potential flooding and damaging winds are expected as a powerful system approaches the area, impacting the region from Sunday morning through Monday afternoon. Initially, the system will bring lighter showers across New England and the Mid-Atlantic Region before they become heavy, accompanied by strong gusty winds that may cause damage across the area, including potential power outages and tree damage.
The same upper-level trough that is bringing severe weather across the Tennessee Valley and Southeast is expected to move east and lift northward becoming negatively tilted across the area on Sunday. At the same time, a powerful cold front will approach, around Sunday afternoon, bringing very heavy rain and strong gusty winds due to the low-level jet. There will also be strong lift aloft combined with instability across a moist atmosphere, making thunderstorms, including a few strong ones, likely across the area, especially along the coast of New York.
In terms of wind strength, surface winds are expected to be around 50-65 knots, particularly late Sunday afternoon and evening. The cold front is expected to push through around Sunday night, bringing very cold air behind it with more mixed precipitation. However, not much snow accumulation is expected in the metropolitan areas, with more accumulation likely to the northwest of regions like New York City.
