Winter Storm Nemo is now poised to become the latest example of a powerful, potentially historic, February storm.

Blizzard warnings have now been issued from parts of southern and eastern New England, including Boston, Hartford and Providence, to the New York City metro area and Long Island.

We lay out the forecast of heavy snow on this page, and layout the threats from damaging winds, coastal flooding, and travel impact on the following pages.

The heaviest snow totals by early Sunday morning are expected in New England from coastal Maine to Connecticut, as well as parts of Upstate New York, where over one foot of snow is expected! Some locations, particularly in coastal New England, may top two feet of storm total snow! The following cities are in the threat for at least one foot of snow:

Boston
Hartford
Providence
Portland, Maine

I just read this on news360, I thought they were talking about northeast England at first, 2ft of snow sounds amazing but damaging too.

its on the east coast, anything that happens there is according to the people there and the media the biggest deal ever. My favorite is when the exact same storm goes across the Midwest before it gets there isn't news worthy, and all of the sudden its a big deal. Makes sense, because the 50+ million people that live in just Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio are a "small market", and nobody would notice.

I don't think it's because of the amount of snow but because of how densely populated the area is. You have NYC, Boston, Hartford, and Providence all within a few hours of each other. There's a ton of people who commute and it just becomes a giant mess.

I wish they wouldn't ****ing name a winter storm. The weather channel is the ONLY place that does it, they started it this year. It's stupid.

and there are so many storms, but they only seem to name the ones that are going towards the north east.... and the names are just stupid... when you have this many storms moving it's hard to know what they are talking about, at least with hurricanes there are just a few of them

and #nemo? comon, some little fish under the sea is going to be ****ed when they open their twitter account.....

Indeed. I am waiting for them to name summer time storm systems that bring storms and tornadoes and flooding for days as it moves through different states.
