A major Winter Storm is expected to dump 8 to 16 inches of Snow on parts of the U.S. Northeast prompting storm warnings from upstate New York to Northern Maine.

Authorities say the Weather stands to disrupt travel, likely to result in major Airline delays and cancellations, and slow economic activity in much of New England.

According to the Weather Service coastal New England could experience flooding, and widespread windy conditions with potential gusts greater than 80 kilometers per hour expected as far west as the Central Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic region.

The Northeast is coming off the fiercest Snowstorm of the Winter, which dumped more than a foot of Snow in some areas last Thursday.
