As winter storm Nemo closes in on the eastern United States, forecasters suggest that the worst of the weather system could hit Boston, from about 5 p.m. Friday until Saturday morning. Total measurements for the area are estimated at around 2 feet of snow.
Nemo is also expected to make its way over to New York where the heaviest snow is expected to start falling at around 7 p.m. Friday.
Blizzard warnings are in effect from coastal Maine to northern New Jersey, including Portland, Maine, Boston, Hartford, Providence, to the New York City metro area and Long Island.
The heaviest snow totals by early Sunday morning are expected in New England from coastal Maine to Connecticut, as well as parts of Upstate New York, where one to two feet of snow is expected!
Some locations, particularly in coastal New England, may approach, or even exceed three feet storm total snow, the National Weather Service reports.
Airlines have also canceled more than 2,700 Friday flights in New York City and Boston as both cities prepare for Nemo.
