Serious Winter Wallop Heading To Tri-State: Possibly 6-12 Inches of Snow On Taanis Esther


stormA major winter storm leaving a rare blanket of snow in Texas is headed toward the tri-state and could bring some significant snowfall to the region later in the week. Though much of the area saw heavy rainfall as a low pressure system moved through the region Tuesday, CBS 2’s Lonnie Quinn said that won’t be the case come Thursday when the storm over Texas is expected to push into the tri-state area.

Computer models forecast the storm to pass over Florida today, get into the Atlantic Ocean and spin over the eastern seaboard, packing a powerful punch in the form of accumulating snow Thursday into Friday.

Some models suggest the bulk of the tri-state area could see between 6 and 12 inches of snow, with winds that could create blizzard conditions.

“The most likely spots that we see accumulations, possibly heavy in our area, would be north and west of the city, also the potential for south and west of the city. But this one we watch very, very carefully,” said Quinn.
