Winter Storm Jonas is predicted to hit the Northeast Friday through Sunday.

The storm, which is is being called a ‘sleeping giant’, could dump as much as two feet of snow could bury parts of the Eastern seaboard. The storm will bring significant snow to more than 50 million people, from DC to Boston, and could bring travel to a standstill

Flooding is likely in New Jersey, Long Island and southern New England due to forecasted heavy waves and high winds which could lead to to beach erosion, along with high tides.

Snow is expected to start in southern New England sometime Saturday morning.
