6:35 pm
could be little slushy on the roadways. so, along the coast, key times here sunset, look at where we are getting majority of the snow, fairly light, could be accumulating and sticking on surfaces, now, little further inland, i-95 corridor, starting as rain late sunday, will change to snow well after sunset, but before sunrise, you could get that little coating of snow early monday. so, those are the things to watch for monday morning. it will just be monday morning where we see the slippery roadway. snow falling at night. that will means it could -- has better chance to accumulate. also with this northeast wind, look for coastal flooding, high tide, 7:00 p.m. sunday, then again 7:00 a.m. monday. it will be a cold breeze though, once this moves out, even though the rain and snow is done, windchill temperatures monday morning, grab the coat, keep it handy, upper 20's, as far as the temperatures g that's what it feels like when you step outside. it is a windy and cold day, there, monday day. the regions tomorrow little sunshine but cool, 42, that rain develops late. then it changes to snow.
