NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — A winter that has largely spared the Northeast thus far is about to arrive with gusto: a storm the National Weather Service called “potentially historic” could dump 2 feet or more of snow between New York and Boston.
The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning from Monday afternoon through midnight Tuesday for the Tri-State area.

Blizzard conditions with heavy snow and powerful winds are possible in New York City starting Monday and into Tuesday, and snow should arrive in some areas before daybreak — just in time for the start of the work week.
“I want everyone to understand that we are facing most likely one of the largest snowstorms in the history of this city, in the recorded history of this city,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.
