It seems that the worst that AccuWeather (channel 7) was preparing us for is turning out to be the most likely storm scenario. The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning effective from noon Saturday until noon Sunday. The NWS is now expecting between 12-15 inches of snow to fall over the city during that period. The snow will be accompanied by high winds with frequent gusts over 35 mph. Whiteout conditions, with zero visibility, are possible at times.
The NYC Office of Emergency Management has Winter Weather Preparedness tips on their website. Stay home, stay warm, be flexible in your plans, pay attention to the forecast as the weekend progresses, and be careful everyone.
