Northeast winter storm cancels flights at Sarasota airport

12 February 2017, 12:59 | Leonard Manning

Hanrahan said some media outlets are forecasting up to 18 inches as a possibility but he said that seems unlikely because the storm is moving so fast and the heavy snow bands will be confined to just 4-6 hours.

As temperatures drop, sleet and rain will be changing to snow in Monmouth and Ocean counties by 9 a.m. or earlier, according to the National Weather Service in Mount Holly.

The storm is so rapidly intensifying with winds gusting to 45 miles per hour that it is "making air travel hard, if not impossible", the Capital Weather Gang reported.

By the evening commute, however, it's likely that the storm will be winding down, if not completely over, from the city to points west and north of town.

The governor urged residents to stay off the roads. Heavy snow is expected to continue throughout the day.

A powerful, fast-moving winter storm swept over the northeastern United States on Thursday, blanketing an area from Pennsylvania to Maine.

The storm is expected to dump as much as a foot of snow on the city before tapering off by the afternoon, officials said. In other words, even though annual snowfall has trended downward in many areas, the snow that does fall tends to come in bigger installments. He said snow was falling at up to 2 inches per hour and expected to intensify as the day went on.

Air travel was also harshly affected by the impending storm, with JFK canceling almost 500 flights, LaGuardia canceling roughly 550 flights and Newark halting over 600 trips.

The flight-tracking site FlightAware.com says more than 2,000 flights for Thursday have been canceled.

Harris Township's snow emergency is effective as of 5 a.m. Thursday.

Hundreds of schools from the Albany area to the eastern tip of Long Island called off classes Thursday as the storm accompanied by gusty winds caused near-whiteout conditions in parts of eastern NY.

The department started the year with 375,000 tons of salt, and now has more than 315,000 at the ready.

If the snow accumulation ends up being on the high end of the forecast, at 12 inches, Garcia said the department will "roll out" 134 front-end loaders.
