A windy Thursday afternoon is in store in the wake of a powerful storm that continues to dump on the Northeast. As high pressure builds in and pushes the storm away, the differences in pressure will create gusts that could cause some spotty power outages on the range of 40-50 mph.
Here's a look at some of the gusts we got earlier Thursday:

As the low gets into northern New England, the winds will decrease and calmer, clearer conditions are expected for Thursday night. On Friday we play the waiting game between storms. It will be the best travel day of the week.
High clouds will arrive by Friday afternoon and snow is expected overnight into Saturday morning. We will fine tune the forecast in the next 48 hours, however, at this time I think this next round of winter weather will start as snow, much like Wednesday's system, but this time the snow will last a little longer with a better chance of it sticking in D.C. into the early afternoon hours before changing to some rain or a wintry mix.
