Nor'easter Takes Aim at the Tri-State

Friday, October 28, 2011

The National Weather Service is predicting a Nor'easter to hit the Northeast this weekend.

Tim Morrin, an observation program leader with the National Weather Service, said New York City may get up to two inches of snow by Saturday night.

He said there is a winter storm watch in effect for north western New Jersey, the Lower Hudson Valley, interior Connecticut and interior southern New England.

"The potential exists for upwards to four, six even upwards to eight inches of snow. Higher elevations could even see upwards of 10 inches," he said.

Morrin said the storm will begin as very cold rain Saturday morning and change to snow in the afternoon evening. Chilly temperatures and heavy precipitation will freeze the surface temperature and allow the snow to stick.
