A man clears snow from a vehicle on Friday, Jan. 3, 2014, in Albany, N.Y. A winter storm slammed into the U.S. Northeast with howling winds and frigid cold, dumping nearly two feet (60 centimeters) of snow in some parts and whipping up blizzard-like conditions Friday.
The Connecticut Department of Transportation says the winds that have come along with the winter storm have made it difficult to plow the roads through the morning hours. The DOT says cold temperatures have also limit the effectiveness of snow-melting chemicals applied to roads.
Forecasters are expecting anywhere from 6 to 14 inches of snow and frigid temperatures in New York. Long Islanders are bracing for the brunt of the storm with blizzard like conditions lasting as long as 24-hours.
