Blizzards over the weekend in New York and and Southern England

on February 8, 2013

New England and New York are forecast to take the hardest hit as tens of millions of people face travel nightmares,widespread power outages and potentially record snowfall from the fierce blizzard on track to batter the Northeast this weekend.

The weather channel named the blizzard as ‘Nemo’.  The New York City metro area, home to three airports and 20 million residents in four states, is expected to see heavy snow, with as much as 12 inches possible in the metro area, according to AccuWeather meteorologist Alex Sosnowski. As of Friday morning, more than 3,000 flights have been cancelled.

The National Weather Service issued blizzard warnings for the entire New York City metro area, Long Island, all of Connecticut and Rhode Island, eastern Massachusetts and coastal sections of New Hampshire and Maine. Some parts of New England should see more than 2 feet of snow, and some coastal areas could see hurricane-force winds of up to 74 mph, the weather service says. New York city metro area could see up to 12 inches of snow.

Not everyone is panicked about the incoming storm. Ski resorts all over New England are excited about what could be the biggest snowfall of the season: “If I had a tail, it would be wagging,” says Stowe Mountain Resort spokesman Mike Colbourn. “Presidents (Day) week is next week, a big nor’easter – all of the stars are in alignment.”
