Heavy snowfall from the Midwest shifted into the Northeast Friday morning beginning at 6 a.m. According the the National Weather Service, a significant number of areas are expected to receive up to two feet of snow as Winter Storm Nemo is predicted to dump snow into the region until Saturday afternoon.

It is a powerful storm that is already considered as devastating as the blizzard of 1978. Major airports along the east coast have announced significant cancellations and delays that will affect both domestic and international flights.
