A surface low will pass just to the southeast of Long Island by this evening and then this tracks into the Canadian Maritimes by Monday morning. High pressure then returns for the beginning of the week. A weak disturbance passes through on Tuesday. High pressure builds in to our north through the middle of next week. A coastal storm moves into the Mid-Atlantic region on Thursday, then tracks northeast into the Canadian Maritimes through Friday. High pressure then builds in through Saturday.

Consider yourself lucky that you're not living elsewhere. Much colder air is expected in the northern Plains on Sunday with temperatures expected to be 10 to 30 degrees below normal. A large portion of North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota will be below zero Sunday morning. Some locations will have air temperatures between -20F and -30F with wind chills ranging from -30F to -45F.
