Blizzard Watch Issued for NYC Area.

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jerseyans are bracing for a major winter storm that could drop several inches of snow across the state and create blizzard-like conditions in some counties.BOSTON (AP) — The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard watch for southeastern Connecticut, eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island for a storm with heavy snow and high winds Monday into Tuesday. Areas east of New York City could receive in excess of a foot of snow if the storm develops as feared, he said, stressing that’s still “a big if.” The storm, which brewed late Saturday around the Iowa-Minnesota line, is likely to track down into the central Appalachians and then very slowly traverse its way through the Northeast states and reach the Gulf of Maine late Tuesday night, he said. The storm will then strengthen rapidly and bring its heaviest amounts from New York into New England. “The system will deepen rapidly Monday through Tuesday,” said Brian Hurley, a meteorologist with the U.S.

The slow movement of the storm, he said, could help produce quite a bit of snowfall and blizzard-like or blizzard conditions: at least three hours of wind gusts of 35 mph or greater and visibility of less than a quarter of a mile because of snow or blowing snow. This is definitely going to be a very high impact event.” Winds could increase to 45 miles per hour on Tuesday, causing blowing and drifting snow that, when combined with heavy snowfall rates, could make travel all but impossible. It would be the second wallop for the Northeast after what happened Saturday, when a storm crawling up the East Coast left a slushy, snowy coating from Pennsylvania to New England.

At that point a secondary low pressure system will reform in the Atlantic Ocean off Virginia and North Carolina and this will be the storm that rapidly strengthens and covers the Northeast with snow, he said. If the storm’s track to the north hugs the coast more, then warmer air and rain may keep snow totals on the lower end in the large cities along Interstate 95, including New York, he said.
