A powerful storm system that prompted blizzard warnings in New York City and Boston is set to cause major travel headaches at the end of the holiday weekend.

The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for the New York metropolitan area effective 6 a.m. Sunday to 6 p.m. Monday. The area includes Newark, New Jersey; New York; and the Long Island and Connecticut coasts.

Forecasters predict between 11 to 16 inches of snow in much of that region, bringing visibility to near zero at times. Sustained winds as strong as 30 mph could hit Sunday night, with gusts up to 55 mph in parts of central and eastern Long Island.

And starting at noon Sunday and extending through 6 p.m. Monday, another blizzard warning will be in effect for all of Rhode Island and most of eastern Massachusetts. Parts of that region could see as much as 20 inches of snow, with strong winds contributing to “extremely dangerous” travel conditions, the National Weather Service said.

“Widespread power outages are expected during the height of the storm Sunday night from both the strong winds knocking down power lines and the weight of the heavy snow,” the weather agency said. “Shoveling should not be done by anyone with heart conditions.”
