Winter Storm, Sub-Zero Temperatures Hit Northeast

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - A major winter storm is unleashing its fury in the northeast Friday morning.

Blizzard conditions range from Boston to parts of the state of New York.

Some areas will see well more than a foot of snow by the time the storm passes, and this is all before sub-zero temperatures move in.

Crews in Boston are working around the clock building mountains of snow as they try to keep up with the winter storm.

Massachussetts is one of the hardest hit areas. The state will see 12-18 inches and in a couple of spots, possibly two feet of snow.

The storm is forcing airlines to cancel flights and conditions are so dangerous in Boston that planes are grounded at Logan Airport.

Driving conditions aren't much better with cars slipping, sliding and spinning out.

New York's Governor shutdown the busy long island expressway. In New Jersey even the plow drivers are having problems.

"With sub-zero temperatures, you worry about frostbite. You worry about hypothermia. It doesn't take long for those symptoms to come on," said Chief James Hooley, Boston EMS.

That's why officials are warning people who want to get out and enjoy the new snow to be careful.

This winter storm comes, as places like Maine are still working on cleaning up after the same ice storm that hit mid-Michigan rolled through almost two weeks ago.
