NYC Eyeing Possible Nor’easter This Week

MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) -

A nor’easter is expected to develop Wednesday along the East Coast just as millions of travelers are heading to their holiday weekend destinations.

“I would pack your patience,” said Robert Sinclair Jr., of AAA New York.

The storm, forecast to dump rain along the coast and snow inland, could cause delays at Northeast airports and along its busy highways. It was forecast to sweep in from the south Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and exit the region Thursday morning.

As of Monday, New York’s highest amount of snow was expected to fall in the Catskills, up to 10 inches in some places. Officials at Kennedy, LaGuardia and Newark airports were “monitoring weather forecasts carefully,” said Steve Coleman, a Port Authority spokesman.
