New York could see a foot of snow and 50 mph wind this weekend

Something wintry this way comes.

A wintry mix, to be precise, a despair-inducing mixture of rain, sleet and snow that's being included in an increasing amount of predictions for this weekend's blizzard for the ages. Three days out, models can still change. But a growing number of meteorologists are predicting that the New York-area could be hit with a whopping foot of snow by the time it stops falling on Saturday night. If the storm system moves north, it could result in warmer air and more of a combination of rain and snow.

The current storm forecast for NYC says there's about a 50 percent chance for more than half a foot of snowfall. No matter the amount of snow, however, we can expect extremely windy conditions with gusts between 50 and 60 miles per hour. 

Meanwhile, this year's Winter Jam in Central Park has yet to be cancelled. So if you're a big fan of The Thing or The Shining, that could be fun.
