If you are planning to travel to or be in the northeastern United States and extreme eastern Canada within the next few days, you may want to consider changing your plans as a powerful winter storm is expected to wreak havoc on virtually every form of travel, with some locations expecting up to as much as two feet of snow under blizzard conditions.
Cities expected to be affected by this winter storm include but are not limited to Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Burlington, Pittsburgh, Hartford, Syracuse, Portland and Providence — and the snow is expected to start later tonight in some locations.
