New York City is just on the edge of feeling the full impact of Winter Storm Electra. Increasingly, the forecasts are going from just a 'wintry mix' to larger accumulations of snow. Forecasters earlier in the week were downplaying Electra's impact on the New York Metro area but now are calling for snow most of the day on Saturday and into the night. The snow could still turn to rain or sleet.
An unprecedented 60% plus of the nation is snow covered which is highly unusual for December. Right now, a brutal cold could be around for Christmas on the East Coast.
If you are in New York City and have plans on Saturday, I would keep aware of Electra. The storm could 'bomb' off the coast and give us quite the surprise.
