Cleveland, Erie, and Buffalo can expect up to a foot of snow, as can areas of northern New England, from the winter storm. For coastal cities: high winds, power outages, and travel delays.
A powerful winter storm that has been blamed for causing six deaths and spawning more than 30 tornadoes is getting ready to dump a significant amount of snow from Cleveland through western New York State and into northern New England.
However, most of the large urban areas will be spared the worst of it – instead getting heavy rain and dangerous winds.
“It will be a stormy night on the East Coast,” says Tom Kines, senior meteorologist at AccuWeather.com in State College, Pa. “The major cities could get wind gusts over 40 miles per hour and along the coast the gusts could be over 50 miles per hour.”
With its strong winds and potential for icing, the storm could lead to power outages, dangerous driving conditions, and lengthy airport delays.
