A state of emergency has been declared in Pennsylvania and New Jersey as the storm moves east.
AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said “Feet of snow, blizzard conditions, a significant build-up of ice, tree-breaking winds and plunging temperatures will close roads, cause flight cancellations and disrupt daily activities over a large part of the northeastern United States this weekend.”
[8:50 PM UPDATE] Snow will increase in intensity through late evening, with heavy snow continuing overnight. The worst is yet to come, with deteriorating travel conditions over the next few hours. Blowing/drifting snow will continue in open areas with very low visibility. #nywx pic.twitter.com/GGz7t1RV6C
