DSC_0596 (1)A major winter storm is expected to undergo bombogenesis and turn into a nor’easter as it pounds the eastern part of the United States as far south as the mid-Atlantic states and Appalachia.

The storm will bring rain, heavy winds, coastal flooding, and eventually snow to the region. Travel conditions will be hazardous and the combination of high winds and heavy, wet snow may result in widespread power outages.

Travelers should expect significant delays and cancellations at airports across the region, and those delays and cancellations will impact other regions of the country as well.

In the New York metropolitan area, rain is expected to start as rain in the late afternoon, with winds picking up after midnight as the rain changes to snow.

By Friday night, some areas will see gusts over 70 mph (112 km/h) including southeast Massachusetts, encompassing Cape Cod, Nantucket Island and Martha’s Vineyard, Rhode Island, and eastern Long Island.
