NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Ready for round 3?

A nor'easter is going to make a mess of the southern U.S. Sunday into Monday, and unless the jet stream drastically changes, we should be OK. However, AccuWeather says some snow and rain for our area cannot be ruled out.

"If the storm comes closer we'll see snow, and it stay farther away then parts of Eastern Long Island will see snow," said AccuWeather Meteorologist Steve Travis. We may see flurries on Tuesday as well, according to Travis.

"At this time, we feel there is a better than 50/50 percent chance the worst of the storm will stay to the south and east of New York City," according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dave Dombek. "A light amount of snow [and rain] cannot be ruled out with roads [expected to stay] mainly wet." 

Strong winds may impact Southern New Jersey. Also, there is potential for the storm to turn northward near the coast, so there is a chance of snow and rain to hit our area.

With thousands still without power following the last two powerful storms that pounded our area, "let it snow" probably won't be on many people's playlists.

The outages have put lawmakers and utilities executives in a war of words.

"We have a crisis on our hands," Westchester County Executive George Latimer told 1010 WINS, who called on executives to resign. 

"Do you have them out there going to the areas that can do the most good, or are you sitting in a corporate boardroom?" Latimer asked Con Ed and NYSEG executives.

Con Ed CEO John McAvoy said the company will do an assessment of its performance after power is restored. He said the utility is focused on repairs, not criticism from Gov. Andrew Cuomo or County Executive Latimer.

"Large limbs came down, many trees completely uprooted, and the result of that is that we're not just repairing our system, in many cases we're actually rebuilding it," he said.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy also expressed frustration with utility companies for not being better prepared as 100,000 customers are still without power in the Garden State.

Murphy has promised a detailed review of utility companies.
