Weekend Nor’easter Could Snarl Travel on East Coast
Areas including New York City and Hartford, Connecticut could see as much as a foot of snow through Monday if the storm continues its course. However, depending on cold air movements and jetstreams, snowfall may be minimal.
As it stands now though, cities as far south as Washington, D.C. could expect to see between 1” and 3” by the end of Monday, with Philadelphia on track to receive as much as 8”.
In New York City, snowfall is predicted to be between 8” and 12”, as is the prediction in Hartford. Further north in Boston and most parts of Maine, there is expected to be between 5” and 8” of the white stuff if the storm does not alter its course.
Assuming the worst, weather conditions could snarl transportation and travel plans at major airports in the region, including Boston Logan, John F. Kennedy International, LaGuardia, Newark Liberty, Washington Reagan, Philadelphia International, Baltimore-Washington International, Washington Dulles.
