Southern New England could see over a foot of snow this weekend



Significant wintry precipitation is possible for the East Coast this weekend.

According to the National Weather Service, confidence is increasing that a significant winter storm will create considerable impacts Friday through the weekend from the Mid-Atlantic through the Northeast.

Heavy snow is most likely in parts of New England. Heavy snow is still possible farther south along the East Coast, including the major I-95 metro areas from New York City to Washington D.C., but that is more uncertain at this time.

Significant coastal impacts are possible in the Northeast, including coastal flooding and beach erosion. Additionally, strong winds may cause blowing snow and some damage.

Hazardous travel conditions are likely in parts of the region.

A lot can change between now and then. However, the potential exists for an impactful winter storm Friday night into Saturday.
