New Jersey: Gov. Christie declared a state of emergency hours before snow started falling on Thursday. All state offices will be closed on Friday for non-essential workers. NBC40.net reports that up to 8" of snow is expected in some parts of the state; 3-5" is expected in South Jersey.

New York: Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared a statewide state of emergency Thursday. Interior parts of NY could see up to 12 inches of snow; NYC is expecting 8 inches. The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for Long Island, where 8 to 10 inches of snow could fall and winds are predicted to gust to 45 mph.

Rhode Island: Forecasters are predicting between 8 and 12 inches of snow. NBC 10's most recent report shows similar snowfall totals, with a bit less for the Westerly and Newport areas. However, high winds will cause blowing and drifting of snow, so a lesser snowfall could still make a big mess.
