Accuweather leads the charge
A “quick-hitting” nor’easter is expected to dump up to a foot of snow this weekend on the Big Apple — with even higher amounts predicted in Long Island and Connecticut, forecasters said Wednesday.

The powerful snowstorm is expected to intensify as it travels north from the Carolinas and arrives in the tri-state area early Saturday, AccuWeather meteorologist Mary Gilbert told The Post.

“Once the snow really starts to get going, conditions are going to deteriorate pretty quickly,” Gilbert said.

“Our confidence is relatively high this is going to be a significant event. The worst of the storm will target New England and potentially New York City.”

The snowfall is expected to wallop the New York area between midnight Friday and 2 a.m. Saturday, with wind gusts up to 45 mph, Gilbert said.

While the Big Apple could get up to between 8 and 12 inches of snow, parts of eastern Long Island may see up to 18 inches before the “quick-hitting” storm leaves the region, she said.

The heaviest snowfall is expected in areas farther north, like Boston and much of New England, which will be “clobbered” with between 12 and 18 inches of snow, Gilbert said.

“Boston is within the bull’s-eye of some of the worst conditions expected, and into Maine,” she said. “They’re going to have very strong winds as well, so travel is going to be very difficult.”

Sucks big time, but at least it's happening on the weekend. The snow is bad enough, but I don't look forward to the inevitable power outages. I have a full propane tank for the generator, but if it's as bad as they figure, I'll need to make a few trips for refills (again).

Good luck, all.

(And I really don't want to see the usual "What is this snow of which you speak?" comments.)

Uugghh. Gasoline tomorrow… but I need to keep my internet or I can’t work. I have a vaccine clinic volunteer gig all day on Sunday, too. Plus, we have a new plow guy, as our old one moved, and last time he had mechanical issues and didn’t show up. The new tractor can’t come soon enough!!

My son lives in Boston. But he spent 5 winters at Michigan Tech in Houghton (winter snow totals 200 to 300 inches), so he's unimpressed by this prediction.

I'm right on the dividing line of 6-12 and 12-18 inches.
Being that I'm at the lowest point of the Pioneer Valley, I'm guessing we will get only about 5-7 inches.
As I like to say, There is a dome over my town that keeps out the bad weather and the good businesses.

I'm just the opposite! I'd rather have snow than the bitter cold.

Being close to the water, it's often true that travelling a few miles east or west means significant increase in the snow amount.

Steve,

Don't know where you're getting your info from but weather.com disagrees with you at least on the north shroe of LI near the Queens border. Expect 8 to 10 inches between Friday evening and Saturday all day. 'course, a minimal change in direction that they can't predict and the totals can change to as little as just a few inches max to over 12". Won't know until the storm actually gets here. Little M is already looking forward to playing outside in it and building a snowman.

I usually refer to Weather Underground. Here's their latest 1pm Thursday



Like other forecasts, it's been swinging back and forth

It increases as you go further east. For instance, here's what they're saying for the Stonybrook area
