A large ocean storm will continue to strengthen off the New England coast today. Colder and blustery weather will funnel into the region on the back side of the storm into Monday. High pressure will then briefly build into the region late Monday, before another frontal system approaches by Tuesday with a chance of rain and snow showers.
