Strong winds may lead to power outages across the Northeast.
The low pressure associated with the nor'easter is intensifying over the Atlantic Ocean. As the storm strengthens, gusty winds are forecast for the I-95 corridor from Philadelphia through Boston.
Widespread wind gusts of 25 to 35 mph are expected inland and gusts up to 50 mph near the coast.
The strongest winds will be felt in Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, and Nantucket in Massachusetts, with winds up to 60-65 mph.
The peak winds will occur this afternoon into tonight.
The combination of wind and falling snow will reduce visibility, leading to dangerous travel and potentially blizzard conditions.
The winds will then weaken across the Northeast Tuesday and Wednesday, but it will remain blustery.
