IMGP4615 (1)A powerful and “potentially dangerous” storm is threatening to bring high winds, heavy rainfall, and flooding to the Northeast towards the end of the weekend.

A deep trough in the jet stream will slam the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast with a fast-moving storm that will bring up to 5” or 127 mm of rainfall in parts of New York State according to the National Weather Service.

Expect winds ranging from 40 to 60 mph (64 to 96 km/h), strong enough to cause significant flight delays, power outages, and downed trees.

Multiple airlines including American, Delta, and United, have put weather waivers into effect for Sunday which will allow travel to be rescheduled several days later. The waivers cover airports ranging from Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia through the New York metropolitan area and New England.
