The governor did this for the 2010 post-Christmas blizzard, I believe.

There will be no flights in or out after lunch Friday until Saturday afternoon if this happens. Make plans.

Yes, NYC was actually shut down too which is rare. NYC is on the bottom fringe of a major snowstorm which means they might or might not get it. Somewhere in CT/RI/Boston area will be the jackpot zones with the most (maybe 2 feet+)

The systems are on the map.

Its all about the Jet Streams. Where and the timing they phase. See current loop here. http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/goes/comp/ceus/wv-animated.gif

2 feet of snow? Hype...Hype....Hype.

Have we not learned anything yet? These are possibilities! Nothing more. Snowfall amount maps should not be released 2 full days out!

Those two systems have to phase at just the right time. A LOT has to happen. We'll know better Thursday late evening. It certainly looks like snow on Friday though since all the models are lining up for SOME amount of snow. Low pressure systems that rapidly intensity off the coast are notoriously hard to forecast. This could easily be a mix event. We don't know yet.

I thought so too....I only based it on what I had heard on the news but found it hard to believe, there were quite a few storms in the 35 years in-between that I would think would have enabled this measure.

By the way, AccuWeather seems to think "epic" for metro Boston and interior New England (and perhaps upstate NY), but for the coast from NYC to Cape Cod, mix/rain until Friday night, then a lot of snow after that:

Wow. And wasn't the NAM the only one that was initially backing off of a 1-2 foot blizzard?
