Forecast of Up to 12 Inches of Snow for Storm-Battered NY Area

Not "massive," says an expert, but "not what we want"


A new storm closed in on the Northeast coast Wednesday, threatening to dump up to 12 inches of snow in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.

"Mother Nature is not cutting us a break along the East Coast," winter weather expert Tom Niziol told The Weather Channel on Wednesday. "We've got a lot of cold air in place down in the lower part of the atmosphere, and it is looking more like snowfall event for good portions of New Jersey, up through eastern Pennsylvania, right up through southeastern New York into New England."
