Hard to believe we'd get hit with a major snowstorm this late in the season, but the forecasters are indicating it. The weather nerd at Northeast Weather Alert is particularly attuned to the possibility of a blizzard in these here parts:
As Old Man Winter continues to show more teeth in the coming days, a storm could pack a heavy punch of snow and wind in the northeastern United States early next week.
"There is the potential for a major snowstorm, and possible nor'easter, from New York City to New England spanning Tuesday and Tuesday night," according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Henry Margusity.
Unlike most of this winter, the storm will have access to plenty of cold air as far south as the coastal mid-Atlantic region. The storm will follow some of the coldest weather of the winter in the Northeast this weekend.
