In general terms

A storm passing eastward (seaward, here on the East Coast) of you brings winds from a NE quadrant, then N then NW.
A storm passing westward (inland) would bring SE then S then SW.

Exact wind direction will vary with proximity to storm's path, path of storm and other factors.

The ones passing westward of you potentially can be stronger (the wind flow is reinforced by the direction of the storm's travel) but a storm will be weakened if it travels over land.
