High pressure moves into the region
The good news for those 130,000 or so in the dark is that there is no precipitation in sight of any concern until the middle part of next week. The storm has passed east into the Canadian Maritimes. High pressure will slowly work into the region. It will be breezy Friday into Saturday as the storm moves further east and the high works in. Gusts in the 15 - 30 mph range are possible, with higher gusts in the mountains, through the first half of the weekend. The breeze may slow down restoration a bit, but it should not hamper recovery efforts a whole lot.
It will be a chilly breeze
