Winter Storm Nemo moves on the Northeast
As winter storm Nemo begins to make landfall in the Northeastern United States, mayors and governors along the northern east coast are urging residents to prepare for the storm. Boston and New York are among the cities expected to be hit the hardest and hundreds of flights and trains have already been canceled between the two cities.
Snow and sleet were already starting to fall in some parts of the Northeast and schools have been canceled as residents were told to expect one to three feet combined with hurricane strength winds until the blizzard has passed. The National Weather Service has warned that Nemo could bring “potentially historic” weather levels.
Winter Storm Nemo was formed due to two low pressure systems, one from the Ohio Valley and one coastal pressure system that is on a jet stream from the Golf of Mexico. The two systems have combined, creating potentially historic snow fall and winds.
