The high confidence in forecast wind and snowfall led the National Weather Service to issue blizzard warnings well in advance of the storm from the New Jersey shore all the way to Downeast Maine, including the cities of New York City, Boston, Providence, Hartford and Portland.

At least 28 million people are in the zone of potential blizzard conditions, and millions more will see enough snow to complicate travel.

All preparations should be made by early this afternoon for this major winter storm. Do not proceed with any travel plans in the affected areas late Monday and Tuesday or you could put yourself in great danger. Prepare for power outages both during and in the days after the storm.
