Low pressure will develop off the mid-Atlantic coast later today and move northeast into tonight while strengthening into a large ocean storm, brushing areas to our east with some light snow tonight. Colder and blustery weather will then funnel into the region behind the storm on Sunday as it strengthens rapidly off the New England coast.
