Here is what the east coast needs to know.

Saturday:   A large area of snow, heavy in some areas, is expected from parts of the Midwest, spreading into the Northeast, with snow arriving in New England mainly late Saturday. Light snow is possible as far south as eastern Oklahoma and northeastern Texas. Strong winds may accompany the snow in the Midwest, potentially leading to near-blizzard conditions in some areas. A band of sleet and freezing rain is possible from Arkansas northeastward into Ohio and the mid-Atlantic states. Saturday night, some freezing rain and sleet may spread into parts of the lower Hudson Valley and southern New England. Precipitation may eventually change to rain along at least parts of the Interstate 95 corridor late, though the details of when and where that may happen remain uncertain.

Sunday:   Snow is expected over the interior Northeast from parts of New York state north of the Lower Hudson Valley to parts of New England. Snow is also expected in parts of the Appalachians from eastern Tennessee through western Pennsylvania. This snow will linger in portions of northern New England Sunday night. Strong winds will buffet much of the East, leading to areas of blowing and drifting snow. Some minor to moderate coastal flooding is possible along the New England and Long Island coasts, mainly during high tide on Sunday morning. Some sleet and/or freezing rain is possible in coastal and southern New England. A flash freeze is also a concern from Boston to New York in areas that get above freezing early Sunday. Temperatures will plummet through the day, freezing any rain or sleet that is on the ground at the time.

Significant flight delays are possible at the major Northeast hubs and possibly at Chicago O’Hare and other airports in the affected areas of the Midwest.

On Sunday, January 20,  Norwegian Cruise Line cruise ship Norwegian Escape departs from Manhattan for a Southern Caribbean cruise. Traveling to New York, make sure to allow extra time  for your travel to your cruise.
