The northeastern United States is about to get blasted with winter weather — it’s just unclear what the damage will be.
- Eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island could see 8 to 16 inches of snow.
- The storm will form off the coast of Georgia in the Atlantic Ocean. Over time, it will strengthen and spread up the East Coast over the weekend.
Quote: “This storm is likely to strengthen at a rate, and to an intensity, equivalent to only the most powerful hurricanes, so the high-end potential of this storm cannot be overstated. But with nor’easters, like in real estate, it will all come down to location, location, location,” CNN meteorologist Brandon Miller said.
More details: The storm could form into a “bomb cyclone,” according to CBS News.
