    Raphael Miranda's forecast for Saturday, November 3. (Published Saturday, Nov 3, 2012)

    There will likely be some bitter cold to contend with this weekend, especially for those with no heat.

    Wind Chill values are in the 30s, with a raw breeze Saturday morning. Saturday night through Monday night temperatures fall below freezing in many suburbs, bringing a risk of hypothermia for anyone exposed to the cold for extended periods of time.

    A Nor’easter is still showing up on computer models for Wednesday. Based on the current forecasts, the potential impacts are as follows:
    - Heavy rain, which could cause localized flooding.
    - Coastal flooding with the potential for flooding exacerbated by damage from Sandy. Fortunately tides are expected to be lower than during Sandy. 
    - Winds could surpass 40 mph, with the strongest winds along the coast.
    - A wintry weather mix may occur north and west of the coast. 

    The storm is still several days away and its track may change.
