NEW YORK — A winter that has largely spared the Northeast thus far is about to arrive with gusto.
Coastal regions from New York to Boston are bracing for a whopper of a snowstorm that could bring up to two feet of snow.
National Weather Service meteorologists say the storm will start edging into the region overnight then turn up the coast.
In New York City, the massive storm is expected to leave up to a foot of snow by Tuesday, followed by 8 inches or so more before Wednesday.
Farther north, a blizzard watch is in effect for Boston from Monday night through early Wednesday. Wind gusts of 60 mph or more are possible.
Conditions should be better to the south and west, with parts of Ohio expected to get up to 6 inches Sunday but a foot is possible in the Philadelphia area by Tuesday afternoon.
