Weather Alert: Blizzard Warnings Northeast
Blizzard Warnings for Long Island, Southeast Massachusetts as Winter Storm Niko Hammers New York City, Boston, Philly
Winter Storm Niko continues to lash the Northeast with heavy snow, high winds, and, in some areas, blizzard conditions, making travel treacherous, if not impossible in Boston, New York City and Philadelphia. Winter storm warnings stretch from coastal Maine southward through New England, southeastern New York, and into eastern and central Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and parts of northern Delaware, northern Maryland and northern West Virginia. This includes Boston, Providence, Hartford, New York City and Philadelphia.
Snow, heavy for some, will continue in parts of the Mid-Atlantic States as far north as New York City through the morning, before tapering off/ending by early afternoon.
Farther north, snow, heavy at times, will develop and persist much of the day in New England, especially in southern and eastern New England.
Snow will gradually taper off in far eastern New England Thursday night. It will be most persistent in Cape Cod (ocean-effect bands) and in Down east Maine.
Winds will intensify quickly along the Northeast coast Thursday, with gusts over 50 mph possible in far southeast New England and Long Island, capable of some downed tree limbs and wires. Some minor coastal flooding is also possible in eastern Massachusetts.
Blizzard conditions are possible in coastal southeast Massachusetts and central/eastern Long Island.
