Northeast – Heavy Rain, High Winds, and Some Snow

6 Dec 2021, 2:00 pm

A front that continues to bring snow into the state of Michigan and brought blizzard conditions to the High Plains and Upper Midwest, and severe storms to the southern U.S. continues to track east into the northeast through tonight. Strong winds, some heavy rain, and likely some snow on the back-side of this system are the impacts we are expecting from this system.

Winter Weather Alerts

Maine is no longer under winter weather advisories, now our attention turns to the lake effect snow expected into the Tug Hill Plateau.


High wind alerts are in place for the lakeshores of Erie and Ontario into Monday. This is where we anticipate the strongest of the wind gusts, in excess of 60 mph. Wind advisories have even expanded as far east as the Atlantic Seaboard through Tuesday morning.

Across the Northeast we will see gusty winds continuing into Monday as the front drops through.


This front will cruise across the region on Monday, bringing wind-driven rain. Expect localized flooding concerns, especially on area roadways.

Rain will change over to snow as cold air gets worked into the higher elevations Monday afternoon and evening, especially for parts of northern New England and New York, where lake effect snow could also lead to accumulating snow.

As the front moves offshore Monday night, lake effect snow is expected across Western New York and Pennsylvania into the overnight hours.

Accumulations of rain will be generally less than 2″. In terms of snowfall, we anticipate up to 2″ for far northern New England and New York along the higher peaks.


Get ready for a wacky temperature swing in the northeast. We will warm into the 50s and 60s on Monday as air all the way from the Gulf gets wrapped up into this storm.

Once the frontal boundary passes Monday night into Tuesday, temperatures will struggle out of the 30s and 40s for highs!
