The biggest East Coast winter storm in years is on target to hit the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast today, Wednesday, December 16, and Thursday, December 17, threatening up to 2 feet of snow in some areas. Winter Storm Gail will intensify into a high-impact nor’easter for parts of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast beginning today, where it will bring heavy snow, strong winds and some coastal flooding. Significant winter storm impacts are not only expected in the interior Northeast, but also near parts of the Interstate 95 corridor from southern New England to New York City and areas near Philadelphia.
Forecasters warn that the “blockbuster” storm will hit hard and fast, causing major disruptions and possible shutdowns, impacting trucking, airport and port operations in the region and leading to shipping delays. The snowfall forecast for Washington is 1 to 2 inches; Philadelphia is 8 to 12 inches; New York City is 14 inches; and Boston is 8 to 12 inches.
Noatum Logistics’ New York Branch remains fully operational and is closely monitoring the situation.
