Looking forward to finding out tomorrow! But at this time NOAA is not optimistic:

If you want to geek out with weather models, the UW wrf is usually pretty accurate:

Sea Level pressure and temperature, look for gradients in both.

High resolution model showing surface winds.

Even higher res model showing surface winds.

You can even look at old models runs if you want to verify how well the model did:
