NEW YORK (AP) – A “potentially historic” storm could dump 2 to 3 feet of snow from northern New Jersey to Connecticut starting Monday, crippling a region that has largely been spared so far this winter.
That’s according to the National Weather Service, which has issued a blizzard warning for New York and Boston beginning Monday night.
Boston is expected to get 18 to 24 inches of snow, and Philadelphia could see 14 to 18 inches.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says the snowstorm could be among the worst the city has ever seen.
At a news conference Sunday De Blasio held up a list of the city’s top 10 snowstorms and said this one could land at the top of a list that goes back to 1872.
Officials are urging residents to plan to stay off roads beginning Monday night.
