A winter storm is spreading across the Northeast and the National Weather Service is calling it ‘potentially historic.’ According to a report by ABC News on Jan. 25, Ohio was hit with some of the snow and ice on Saturday and Sunday and now the winter storm is spreading across the Northeast like wildfire. According to the report, this winter storm could bring two feet or even more of snow in Boston and New York.
Just in time for the start of the work week for most people, the winter storm will bring not just heavy snow but powerful winds as well on Monday and Tuesday. Once daybreak hits, both Boston and New York will see heavy snow on the ground making it hard for many people to go to work and school.
According to the National Weather Service Meteorologist, Brian Hurley, this could be the “strongest storm of the year.” This is what he had to say about the winter storm that will be hitting us all on Monday and Tuesday:
This will be the strongest storm of the year. This Nor’easter is going to produce a wide swath of snowfall.
He also expects New York City, Boston, and Connecticut to get up to two feet of snow during this major winter storm coming early this week.
According to The Boston Herald, the storm that had already hit Philadelphia and some parts of New York City left behind some slushy road conditions on Saturday and some parts of Ohio were icy as well. However, everyone will need to brace themselves and be prepared for what is coming in the next couple of days for the Northeast Coast.
Some people are already preparing for this massive winter storm coming in the Boston area. In fact, Wyatt Baars, a manager for the Charlestown Ace Hardware in Boston told ABC News that they have already run out of many things including bags of ice melting pellets. However, to help more people get prepared for this storm, he has another distributor sending him more stuff that will be needed for it from New Hampshire.
Boston isn’t the only city preparing for it either. New York City’s Home Depot has run out of snow shovels as well as other important items everyone needs to prepare for something as bad as it is supposed to get.
Stay tuned for more details on how bad the storm is within the next couple of days.
