BOSTON (February 7, 2013)--New England was braced Thursday for a major winter storm that’s expected to dump as much as 2 feet of snow in some areas from Friday into Saturday.
The National Weather Service in Taunton says most of southern New England could get between 18 and 24 inches of snow starting Friday morning and continuing into Saturday afternoon.
The Cape could get a little less, although forecast totals varied widely.
Meteorologist William Babcock said it's looking like it's going to be a very powerful storm.
If everything falls the way it has the potential to it could be among the top 10 snowstorms ever in New England.
New York City is also bracing for snow, anywhere from 4 to 6 inches.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the city is ready, and if bad weather has to happen, it's better to have it on a weekend.
