A blizzard warning has been issued for most the northeast. Dubbed Winter Storm Nemo, the storm is expected to dump anywhere from one to two feet of snow along the East Coast from Pennsylvania to Maine. Snow is predicted to start early Friday morning and last through Saturday.
Forecasters are predicting that this could be the largest winter storm in recent years, with heavy snowfall and wind gusts up to 50 miles per hour. Though reports have varied, they are now saying that this storm is “poised to become the latest example of a powerful, potentially historic, February storm.”
Current weather forecasts predict that New England will be hit with the most significant accumulation, while the surrounding area, including New York City, will see its own share of snowfall. Government officials in the area already have started preparations in case of widespread power failures, travel delays and cancellations, and school closings.
