Sunday, December 26th, 2010
Americans are expected to return to the shopping malls Sunday to take advantage of post-Christmas sales and return gift items. But, on the nation's East Coast, their plans could be disrupted by heavy snow and gusting winds.
Forecasters are warning of blizzard conditions for New York City and Boston, with snow accumulations up to 50 centimeters along the northeastern coast. Snow is expected to fall from the Carolinas up to coastal Maine.
Maryland and Virginia have declared states of emergency ahead of the snow.
The weather is expected to complicate holiday travel, after many people spent the December 25 Christmas holiday away from home with family and friends.
Hundreds of flights already were canceled on Saturday because of a storm system dumping snow across the country's midwest and the southeast. It was the first “white Christmas” for the southern city of Atlanta since the 1800s. This new storm will be a double blow for some areas.
