Monster Blizzard Could Slam Northeast

Two ferocious storm systems are expected to converge overnight, resulting in what could be a historic blizzard for parts of the Northeast.

A winter blast churning westward across the country and a cold front barreling northward along the East Coast will amass, potentially dumping feet of snow.

Boston could have its largest snowstorm in recorded history — up to 30 inches, CNN meterologists say. Hartford could see record-breaking snowfall as well.

Wind will also be a major concern, says HLN Meteorologist Bob Van Dillen. Gusts could reach 75 mph along Cape Cod and 55 mph in the Long Island Sound, causing coastal flooding. “The wind will basically push the water westward, making the tides rise from about three to five feet.”
