Brace yourself. A storm is about to hit the Northeast; blizzard watch for NYC, Boston

0

Sunny days and T-shirt-wearing temperatures made it appear winter had made an early exit. But it's not finished with us yet at least in the Northeast where a powerful storm with high winds and up to a foot of snow is expected.

Forecasters at the National Weather Service said Saturday there's a blizzard watch for coastal regions including New York City and Boston for Monday night into Tuesday. There also is a winter storm watch for a larger area that includes much of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, upstate New York and New England.

The severe weather comes just a week after the region saw temperatures climb into the 60s in what looked like a sign of balmy spring. The chilly weather and snow some areas got on Friday was just a teaser.

"It's a noticeable difference. It's going to be a cold week," said Brian Hurley, a meteorologist at the weather service's Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Maryland.
