Following an outbreak of severe storms, including tornadoes and damaging winds, in the Midwest on Sunday, strong winds will shift into the Northeast and eastern Canada on Monday.
The winds are set to whip New York City, Boston and Portland on Monday morning, creating headaches for commuters. Rain will likely add to the travel woes in Boston and Portland.
The strength of the impending winds threaten to cause tree damage, power outages, flight delays and dangerous crosswinds for high-profile vehicles. Falling trees can lead to additional damage or bodily harm.
Many gusts will range between 40 and 55 mph, but can be locally higher.
This will be a brief damaging wind event that is produced by gusty showers accompanying a cold front tracking toward the East Coast.
However, winds will be strong behind the front as well across southeastern Canada. Winds can gust over 40 mph in Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City.
Colder air in the wake of the front will sweep away the mild air and ignite more snow showers downwind of the Great Lakes. For the major I-95 cities from Boston to Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures will be as much as 20 degrees lower on Tuesday compared to Monday. The chilly weather will stick around through midweek.
