The National Weather Service forecasters are monitoring the possibility of a major winter storm affecting the Northeast later this week, including the possibility of heavy snow for the urban corridor extending from Washington, DC, to New York and Boston Friday and extending into Sunday.

According to forecasters, based on the anticipated storm track, as much as 1 to 2 feet of snow is possible near and northwest of I-95.

Forecasters said coastal flooding is also likely.

Strong winds and coastal flooding from the storm could cause property damage and beach erosion — and could severely disrupt travel on Friday and Saturday, according to the National Weather Service in Mount Holly.

Forecasters are continuing to monitor the track of the storm and accumulation totals for the region.
