Winter Storm Warnings and Blizzard Warnings are in effect for New York City, Boston and all east coast areas from southern New Jersey to Maine.
The classification of a blizzard has nothing to do snowfall. It has everything to do with WIND and VISIBILITY.
* Sustained wind or frequent gusts to 35 mph or greater for a period of 3 hours or longer
* Falling or blowing snow reducing visibility to less than 1/4 mile.
The exact words from the NWS Office in New York City:
