HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A winter storm has arrived in New England with the potential to drop more than a foot of snow.
Winter storm warnings and watches are in effect for a large swath of the northeast as the storm promised to make travel messy on the first work day of the new year.
The worst of the storm is expected to hit later Thursday with bitterly cold temperatures.
Up to 14 inches of snow is forecast for the Boston area and the National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for Long Island from Thursday evening into Friday afternoon.
New York City could see 3 to 7 inches and Gov. Andrew Cuomo is warning commuters to leave their cars at home in case highways have to be closed.
