According to the watch, "The worst of the storm will be Friday night into Saturday morning," with snowfall rates of 2 to 3 inches per hour possible. "Travel may become nearly impossible with blowing and drifting snow."
Several news outlets can agree that Winter Storm Nemo will bring a minimum accumulation of 18 inches to the area, but the maximum accumulation numbers vary.
Here's the deal:
