Timing It Out & Breaking It Down

As rain expands in coverage and increases in intensity, winds will also be increasing, gusting between 20-40 mph. Temperatures will surge into the 60s.

4 p.m. Sunday - 6 a.m. Monday: This is the main event window. Throughout this time frame, heavy rain and strong winds will ramp up. A few embedded thunderstorms are even possible.

Freshwater flooding is very possible, but so, too, is coastal flooding and beach erosion, as onshore winds pile waves along the coast. This would be particularly bad during high-tide cycles, and high tides will be running higher than average, due to the proximity of the New Moon on Dec. 12.

Winds may reach tropical storm force at times, with gusts between 40-60 mph. Coastal areas, especially on Long Island, are likely to see the highest gusts.

Then, as colder air filters in, our far northwestern suburbs start to see some snow. Temperatures sharply fall into the 30s and 40s with the passage of the front.

Rest of Monday: Though the heaviest rain will already be over for most areas, some lingering heavy bands are possible for eastern Long Island early.

As more cold air funnels in, all of the northwestern suburbs could see snow between the hours of 6-10 a.m. Accumulations will generally be in the coating to 3-inch range.
