New York City braces for snow chaos
(01-02 09:04)

Residents in the northeastern US have begun preparing for a winter storm that could dump up to 7 inches of snow on New York City.
Snow is expected to begin falling overnight in some areas, promising a messy commute for the first business day of the new year, but the full storm is not expected to hit until later Thursday.
“There will be travel problems,'' Hugh Johnson, a National Weather Service meteorologist, said Wednesday.
Near blizzard conditions are forecast for areas along the coast. The bulk of the snow is expected to hit southern New England and southern sections of Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. –AP
