Winter Storm Kenan was captured slamming the New York metro area and New England on Saturday, with its swings and swirls along the entire East Coast in a video released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
The satellite imagery shows the “bomb cyclone” pulling moisture north from as far away as the Gulf of Mexico, one of the factors in the huge amount of snow dropping. New York City is looking at a foot before the storm dies down, while much of Long Island could see 2 feet. Three feet could fall in the Boston area.
The size reflected the strength of the storm, said AccuWeather meteorologist Randy Atkins. “Weaker systems don’t show as large,” he said.
