Those areas might see some flurries on Tuesday, but the snow is expected to really start coming down Wednesday, beginning in the Boston area around 9 a.m. and starting in New York City in the afternoon. The watch will go into effect early Wednesday morning through Thursday morning.

The nor'easter, an East Coast storm known for its aggressive winds and downpour of snow and rain, caused several airlines to cancel flights, including a number of airlines preemptively warning customers of delays and cancellations ahead of the storm.

Correia said the current forecast is for 8 to 12 inches of snow west of Boston and into Rhode Island and CT. Snow showers and coastal flooding were expected in parts of upstate NY and New England on Sunday as another, much weaker storm arrives and mingles with the bomb cyclone, nicknamed "windmageddon" for the widespread damage and power outages caused by its strong winds.

There are some differences between the storms.

But that's not the only snow we'll get this week; a much more substantial storm is looking more and more likely for Wednesday and into Thursday. Since it's still a few days out though, that could change.

Fished said a winter storm watch is up along the Northeast Corridor, and the storm is expected to swing across the Northern Plains before it becomes a nor'easter and moves along the East Coast. "If the track of the storm is further off shore, that'll result in a colder solution and result in more snow in the coastal areas".

A woman clutches her umbrella as strong winds hit New York City on Friday.

"It looks like a war zone", she said, describing the scene in the coastal town near Boston where powerful waves dumped sand and rubble on roads and winds uprooted huge trees.

He also stated in his autobiography that his build-up to the 2012 Tour had fully gone to plan, and that his health had been good. His use of the substance triamcinolone became known when Russian hackers Fancy Bears leaked details in September 2016.

A tree fell into a house in Kensington, Maryland, Friday when heavy winds and flooding caused trees to fall in the area.

"We saw some of the worst coastal flooding since the "Perfect Storm" back in 1991", said David Cropper, owner of the Cinnamon Rainbows surf shop in Hampton.

Residents throughout New England and NY are still feeling the effects of this past weekend's nor'easter.

The governors of four U.S. states have declared states of emergency.

"At this point, we don't know really the breadth of the damage, that's what we're going to really try to figure out in the next week", MEMA Regional Director James Mannion told local officials, according to WBUR. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo declared an emergency in Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess and Sullivan counties. "Damage assessment teams will be going out [Monday] to probably the top 20, 25 communities to take a sort of a quick snapshot of where the damage is, what the big ticket items are". There is the potential of 6 or more inches away from the coast. "Motorists may face slick patches for the Monday morning commute".

Skies were clear Sunday over much of the Northeast hit by the storm, which was blamed for nine deaths, including two children struck by trees.

Coastlines in MA and southern NY saw high tide flooding over the weekend, with streets in downtown Boston flooded to almost historic highs.
