Brace yourselves, bundle up, and buy a shovel: This is going to be a big one. At this moment, a blizzard watch is in effect for New England. A storm is headed that way and could be historic. This is expected to drop more than two feet of snow in some places, and it all starts tomorrow.
Meteorologist Indra Petersons is tracking this mess for "Early Start" from the CNN Weather center in Atlanta. She says the snowfall in Boston could rival its worst blizzard back in 2003, when the city had 27 1/2 inches.
It all comes down to two storms coming together.
"We're going to watch this instability produce heavy showers even through Atlanta today. We're going to see a low form, start to be kind of a rain and wind event as it moves across or north on the Eastern Seaboard. And then, notice, the other storm system. Now, watch as these two merge together. Again, once they merge, it's all about the positioning, not only of the low itself but where the freezing line is all these factors will determine how much snow we will have in each area," Petersons says.
A blizzard warning has been issued for Boston, Rhode Island and Connecticut. There are also winter storm watches through most of New England. Depending on that position in the freezing line, Petersons says the amount of snow could vary.
WEIGH IN: Are you looking forward to the storm, or looking forward to hiding from it?
