http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/08/nyregion/northeast-could-be-hit-with-major-snowstorm.htmlAt some point Friday night, the arctic jet stream will drop down from Canada and intersect with the polar jet stream, which usually travels through the lower 48 states.
“They will cross somewhere between New Jersey and Nantucket,” said Tim Morrin, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service. “That is where the center of the storm will deepen and explosively develop.”
While the forecast is still subject to change, the current indication is that while New England will bear the brunt of the storm’s severity — with more than two feet of snow and blizzardlike conditions currently forecast in the Boston area – New York City and the surrounding area are also in for a significant hit.
By the time the storm has passed through, sometime on Saturday, forecasters predict the storm will have dumped as much as a foot of snow in the area, while delivering blistering winds reaching 50 m.p.h., and flooding coastal areas.
