A potent winter storm is forecast to bring heavy snow and howling winds to the East Coast by Friday, potentially closing roads and schools, canceling flights and causing power outages.

A potent winter storm is forecast to bring<span style="color: Red;">*</span>heavy snow and howling winds to the East Coast by Friday, potentially closing roads and schools, canceling flights and causing<span style="color: Red;">*</span>power outages.
The metro areas in and around<span style="color: Red;">*</span>Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, New York City and Boston could all see heavy snow from the storm, according to AccuWeather.
Blizzard conditions are possible, meaning winds of 35 mph and visibility of only a quarter-mile for at least three hours.
It could be the first storm in 13 years to dump a foot of snow on the entire Northeast megalopolis, Weather.com reported.<span style="color: Red;">*</span>More than 50 million people could be affected by snowfall heavy enough to disrupt travel by road, rail<span style="color: Red;">*</span>and air.
Along the coast, high winds and pounding surf could lead to beach erosion, according to WeatherBell meteorologist Ryan Maue. The full moon will exacerbate the chance of coastal flooding as tides will be higher than average.
The areas at greatest risk for coastal flooding and beach erosion are in New Jersey, Long Island and southern New England.
Ahead of the storm, ferocious cold was<span style="color: Red;">*</span>keeping most of the Midwest, Northeast<span style="color: Red;">*</span>and Mid-Atlantic in a deep freeze Tuesday. Temperatures will remain in the single digits and teens across much of those three regions, with wind chill values expected to drop below zero in many places, the National Weather Service said.
Even Florida was relatively cold Tuesday, with a high of only 55 degrees forecast in Tampa, AccuWeather predicted.
A separate storm not associated with the late-week blizzard<span style="color: Red;">*</span>was spreading light snow Tuesday across the central Plains and Ohio Valley, where 3-5 inches is likely by Wednesday.<span style="color: Red;">*</span>St. Louis, Cincinnati and Nashville are all in the path of that storm.
