Eighteen to 24 inches of snow may fall in Boston due to winter storm Nemo, and the city has an 85% chance of receiving at least 12 inches from the storm that is expected to arrive in two days, according to the latest forecast from National Weather Service in Taunton, Massachusetts, published at at 4:25 a.m. EST.
In New York, one estimate showed that the area could see over 38 inches of snow. That is considerably more than the most snowfall on record.
The latest NBC New York report has a smaller estimate in the RPM model — 19.8 inches.
According to Accuweather, a history-making snowstorm will only be possible if two storms, one coming from the west and one coming from the south, merge.
"While this is a possibility, it would be difficult for a storm to do this without a blocking area of high pressure to the northeast," Winter Weather Expert Rob Miller told Accuweather.
