pieces. this is the small piece coming later saturday night and into early sunday morning, mainly delaware in the shore. that moves by and then just cloudy and damp for much of the day on sunday and here comes the next round sunday night. and this is the leading edge of the nor'easter and it's a lot bigger area for precipitation and heavier. and that heavy stuff is coming in during the day on monday. very heavy rain and gusty winds and maybe some thunderstorms in parts of the area and some models have it change over to snow in the poconos by the end. this is going to be a pretty wild system coming through and a lot of computer models show not only strong gusty winds but they're right out of the east, so sunday, it's not all that windy at 6:00 but 11:00, picking up to 20 to 30 miles per hour. monday morning, strongest.
