Blizzard to Hit New York

The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for New York City for Friday and Shabbos, with up to 14 inches of snow expected.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Ready or not, here it comes.

The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for New York City, southern Westchester County and coastal portions of northeast New Jersey. It will be in effect starting 6 a.m. Friday through 1 p.m. Saturday.

Snow accumulations are expected to range from 10 to 14 inches, with higher amounts in some parts of the area.

The strongest winds and heaviest snow will occur Friday evening into Saturday morning, the National Weather Service said.

Two powerful storm systems heading toward the area are expected to collide and dump snow, rain and slush over the region Friday.

“We’re waiting for a converging system,” said CBS 2 meteorologist John Elliott. “You’ve got a storm to the south and one coming in from the north.”

When the two storms converge, they will become a nor’easter.

Elliott’s forecast called for an early start to the storm Friday, with a light snow. As the day progresses, Elliott said the snow will change to rain over New York City, with the heaviest rain and snow coming down late Friday morning through Friday night.

“Some parts of the area will see in excess of ten inches,” Elliott said. “Best bet for that will be north and east of the city. Parts of Long Island dealing with that 10-12 inch range.”

The storm is expected to end early Saturday morning.

The air, the brain
The Arctc air is looks kind of like a brain! It's a sign from Hashem not to let your brain fill with cold air of things that distract us from the proper frum way of living, and to warm our brains with Torah and chassidus. Don't let ychaste ito us thinking go cold! Also, use your brains and prepare for the onslaught!

To Bais Rivkah Student # 4
Guess Bais Rivkah no longer teaches their students that the weather comes directly from Ha Shem. Hello...if everything a Yid sees and everything aa Yid hears has to be used for avodas HaShem, so something like the weather - which comes openly from HaShem, for sure has to teach us a lesson. If it's warm...be warm to another Yid. If it's cold....cool off a bissel to the pleasures of Olam Hazeh. If it rains...that's gishmei brocho.Learn more Torah, give more tsedakah. And when it snows..yetsapeh l'bias haMoshiach. Vacation..my foot,. Go on miftsoyim
