Winter Storm Watch Issued for Tristate

We knew a powerful winter storm was a possibility.  Now the National Weather Service has made it official.  The tristate is under a Winter Storm Watch and we will see brutally cold (even Arctic temperatures early next week) and we could see a bunch of snow as the temperature falls.  Here’s the latest forecast and your initial projected snowfall amounts. . .
