Northeast threatened with first significant storm of the winter season.

The large cities along the East Coast, including New York, will get a slushy mix of precipitation from a fast-moving storm that will bring heavier snow and ice into interior locations from the mountains of Virginia to New England.The National Weather Service is forecasting a coastal storm peaking on Saturday that could bring all manner of wintry peril to snow-starved city dwellers from Washington, D.C., to Boston.PHILADELPHIA (AP) – A messy mix of rain, snow and sleet is bearing down on the Northeast’s major cities in what forecasters are calling the Interstate 95 corridor’s first brush with a significant winter storm this season.

The first storm is expected to undergo rapid intensification as it slides up the coast, packing tropical storm force winds and a plume of tropical moisture stretching all the way down to the Caribbean. She said the storm’s impact will be felt especially in the morning. “There will be a lot of that accumulation then, and then rain will come and wash it all away,” Meola said Thursday. He said snowfall totals were expected to be around 1 to 2 inches across eastern Long Island but higher to the west, with the city getting 2 to 5 inches. On the other hand, the overall weather pattern is lacking a substantial reservoir of cold air to the north right now, increasing the chances that warmer air from over the ocean could cut into the potential for what might have otherwise been a blockbuster storm. In Boston, Winter Storm Watches have already been posted for areas just inland of the coast, where brief periods of heavy, wet snow may make travel difficult and take a toll on power lines.
