Temperatures across parts of the northeast US were particularly on the chilly side today as Americans went to the polls.
Energy from the Midwest was pivoting eastward across the South and spawned a surface low off the southeast coast .This low will then make the turn northward up the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast coast while intensifying.
This appears to result in a very windy, rainy and cold couple of days along the Northeast I-95 corridor. The strength and duration of the winds would be dictated by the exact track and strength of the low. The winds will kick up high surf along the coast that could lead to additional coastal flooding.
Across the interior Northeast or New England, there may be enough cold air for snow to go along with the windy conditions, particularly from the Poconos to the Catskills, Upstate New York and interior New England.
Though this storm will not have near the magnitude of the impact Sandy had, the combination of rain and wind will add insult to injury for the recovery process along the East Coast.
