This is it, folks! We're officially in the dead of winter, when every week there's a threat of snow and going out requires a little bit (ok, a lot) of extra preparation.

This weekend, Meteorologists are expecting a powerful Nor'easter to hit NYC with the potential for heavy snowfall. 

The National Weather Service says there will be a 30 percent chance of snow after 8am, continuing into the night after 8pm, bringing about 1 to 3 inches of accumulation. On Saturday, NWS says snow is likely before 2pm and again before 2am. Temperatures will be below freezing, so it's likely to stick.
