Winter storm could drop a foot of snow on Northeast US

Winter storm could drop a foot of snow on Northeast US

By Thursday morning, heavy snow snarled the morning rush in NY. Blowing and drifting snow is possible.

Gusty winds up to a whopping 71 miles per hour was reported in the state of NY.

Along the corridor from Washington, D.C., to New York City, all rain is in store as mild air takes over. Police said Miguel Angel Gonzalez, 59, of Bridgeport, Connecticut, suffered cuts on his neck and face.

"Visibilities will become poor with whiteout conditions at times". The wet, heavy snow could also stick to trees, branches and power lines, which could cause widespread power outages. "Even with four-wheel drive, you can't do anything".

"Details of course have yet to be determined and timing will be critical as to how much snow may occur", the weather service said. Boston canceled school on Friday, too. Some suburbs received 5 inches, but by the afternoon, the sun was out. Farther north, Nashua, New Hampshire, received over 13 inches and Berwick, Maine, recorded about a foot. We need to monitor this feature very closely because, unlike today's storm, it could slow down and really crush some part of New England and linger longer. According to FlightAware.com, more than 650 flights have been grounded at LaGuardia, where snow is falling at a rate as fast as one inch per hour, per Weather.com.

Boston Mayor Martin Walsh also said the city's public school system would be shut Thursday, and he urged people to be "looking out for your elderly neighbors, disabled neighbors, neighbors who might not be able to help themselves".

"It's fun. And it's an experience". "What's life without adventure?"

He added that the methods of paying for the will are still being discussed within the administration. Kelly said the goal for such fast implementation was to cut off any potential threats to the U.S.

Snow began falling overnight, following record high temperatures for February in NY on Wednesday, with as much as 10 to 14 inches (25 to 35 centimeters) expected to accumulate during the day.

Temperatures are expected to remain cooler for the rest of the week, with a high near 30 degrees and sunny skies on Friday. A bigger, more widespread storm could bring more than that Saturday night into Monday morning, especially in Central New York.

We'll be along with updates, new information and conditions throughout the day. "This is what we expect".

The snow is expected to come to an end Thursday night.

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone declared a state of emergency at 11 a.m., which allows the county to call for additional assistance from the state and enter into certain agreements for removing snow from roadways.

Wearing a T-shirt, Alicia Jones tossed salt on the sidewalk outside the Philadelphia restaurant where she works and lamented about what could have been.
