High pressure will start to build across the Northeast leading to a tight pressure gradient. As this occurs, the main weather threat becomes a prolonged period of gusty winds.

The threat of scattered power outages and snapped trees are possible through Monday night. A wind advisory has been issued across a majority of the region through 1 a.m. Tuesday.
