develop into a big storm off the east coast this weekend. for us the timing of when that gets here would be saturday afternoon into sunday morning. so the timing has changed a little bit. it's a little deeper into the weekend. the track remains critical to how much we're going to get out of this storm and how far north it comes but regardless of that there will be some impact with snow, certainly some wind and impacts along the coast as well. but i think the heaviest shows may target areas to our south, places like d.c., philly, baltimore, stretching down towards virginia as well. new york may get into this, too. really the mid atlantic states likely will get the worst of what this storm has to offer. southern new england will ride the edge of this storm and looks like southern new england, yes. northern new england likely missing out on the bulk of the storm. but if you have travel plans this weekend up and down interstate 95, you'll be impacted it appears by this storm system. we have the winds out there this morning gusting 20, over 30 miles per hour still.
