Another whopper of a snow storm is expected to pummel the Northeast with four to six inches of wet, sticky snow mixed with rain. Expect low attendance at many schools here in Staten Island, though the schools are expected to remain open tomorrow and Thursday.
"A storm packing heavy, wet, travel-snarling snow threatened the Midwest on Tuesday with its hardest punch of the winter, and forecasters said it could curl through the major cities of the Northeast later this week," added Associated Press on MSN.
"Chicago expected up to a foot of snow, the most there since a blizzard in 2011. More than 1,100 flights were canceled into and out of O’Hare and Midway airports," added the report. Minneapolis-St. Paul reported delays up to an hour, where more than 100 flights had been canceled, according to FlightAware.com.
Rain to turn to snow in New York City
"Rain was expected to change to snow Wednesday in Baltimore and Philadelphia and Wednesday night in New York, threatening the Thursday morning commute there," added AP. The Weather Channel said New York could get 4 to 6 inches of snow.
Meteorologists said the storm could pack fierce wind gusts as well, up to 60 mph, tropical storm strength, along the New Jersey shore.
So Staten island get out your snow boots and snow shovels. The messy stuff is coming our way.
