Play video Weather across the Northeast is detailed in the above AccuWeather.com video.

The New York area was spared the worst from the nor'easter, and another dry day is shaping up for Sunday.

The return of clouds to the New York City area Saturday night with spotty drizzle across Long Island will be followed by a dry Sunday underneath a partly sunny sky.

A mixture of clouds and sunshine are forecast for the Jets/Steelers game Sunday afternoon at MetLife Stadium.

The only fly in the ointment will be a brisk northeast wind blowing near the coast, keeping the ocean rough.

Monday, Columbus Day, appears to the the nicest day of the weekend with a partly to mostly sunny sky.

The nor'easter that brought rough seas from North Carolina to New Jersey will slowly settle to the south and weaken through Monday.
