A Nor'Easter Could Bury NYC And NJ In A Foot of Snow This Week


There is a winter storm warning in the tri-state area this week.

The first of two winter storms will hit the area Monday, Monday's storm is only expected to bring a slushy inch or two in some parts of the area and mostly rain in NYC. The second storm however is expected to start Wednesday afternoon and last into Thursday. This storm could leave a foot of snow on NYC and up to a foot and a half on areas northwest of the city. Storm Team 4, feels that NYC and most of New Jersey will get heavy snow and winds up to 60 mph could cause power outages. Coastal flooding is also a threat.

It's still too early to predict the exact path of the storm, but heavy snow is being seen coming to NYC and much of New Jersey.

Anyone traveling Wednesday into Thursday may have to make some adjustments to allow for additional travel time.

At this point it is too early to tell if Wednesday's storm will be clarified as a 'blizzard' (35 mph wind gusts and falling snow for at least three straight hours) however you should keep an eye on weather updates!
