Major winter storm expected to reach East Coast this weekend

A strong coastal storm could bring some heavy precipitation and strong winds to New York City and the Tri-State area over the weekend including the potential for the first significant snowfall in nearly 2 years.

The last time there was an inch of snow on a single calendar day in New York City was Feb. 13, 2022.

It is still too early for specifics at this time, but AccuWeather says impactful snow, heavy rain, strong winds, and coastal flooding are all on the table.
