The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for northern New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, and New York starting Monday evening, as a powerful late-winter nor’easter approached, threatening to dump up to 18 inches of snow in some areas, with parts of Massachusetts possibly getting up to two feet of snow on Tuesday. Much of the rest of the Northeast is under a blizzard watch. AccuWeather meteorologist Tom Kines said anyone in the affected areas without a good reason to go out should “prepare for the worst” and stay at home. “It’s going to be a ferocious storm from New Jersey on up to New England,” Kines said.
