Town braces for first winter storm

NPR says that according to FlightAware, more than 225 US flights had been canceled and more than 2,000 delayed on Saturday alone.

The city of Duluth issued a no-travel advisory Saturday amid a heavy snowstorm that's expected to drop more than a foot of snow on the North Shore by midday Sunday.

But by Sunday morning, more than 330 flights had been delayed, with almost 20 of those in the NY area, according to FlightAware.com.

Even within Boston, which is under a winter weather advisory, snowfall totals could vary widely, with as few as 3 inches at Logan Airport and as much as a foot in Jamaica Plain, Buttrick said in a brief phone interview Sunday morning. Travel impacts are expected to last through Monday, the weather service said. He says the heavier snowfall will occur Sunday night, overnight into early Monday. New York City and Boston could see up to four inches of snow, with a scant inch forecast for Philadelphia.

A two-part storm system is bringing a mix of snow, rain and ice just as millions return home from Thanksgiving and then head back to work.

Travel impacts are likely Sunday afternoon and Monday, the National Weather Service tweeted.

In Massachusetts, the state Emergency Management Agency issued an "awareness statement" warning of 8 to 12 inches of white stuff over much of the state's interior and up to 17 inches on the eastern slopes of the Berkshires.

Wind gusts up to 50 miles per hour created ground blizzards and below-zero wind chill temperatures in some areas.

Areas at around 2,000 feet will begin to see snow Saturday. Forecasters advise chains will be necessary to navigate roads in mountainous regions - though white-out conditions in some areas may make driving especially unsafe.

Portions of Northern California and Nevada are under winter storm watches or warnings, with NWS Sacramento saying that "travel is highly discouraged" between Saturday morning and Monday evening.

"Some flooding is possible in parts of Northern California, especially for areas with burn scars", the weather service said. The utility said the outage was storm related, after winds and snow-covered trees downed wires.

The utility said it would be passing out firewood to affected residents with the help of authorities.

The good news is that after this system finally moves out by Tuesday afternoon, we are dry and seasonable through the end of the work week.

Sunday, expected to be a historically busy day for United States airlines, will see an anticipated 3.1 million passengers, according to Airlines for America, an airline trade organization.

About 49 million people are also expected to have traveled by auto for the Thanksgiving holiday, according to an estimate by AAA.

The New York City Department of Sanitation issued a snow alert for Sunday as the storm moves toward our area.
