The high confidence in forecast wind and snowfall led the National Weather Service to issue blizzard warnings well in advance of the storm from the New Jersey shore all the way to Downeast Maine, including the cities of New York City, Boston, Providence, Hartford and Portland. Most of the warnings are in effect from Monday afternoon or evening through late Tuesday night.
At least 28 million people are in the zone of potential blizzard conditions, and millions more will see enough snow to complicate travel.
Do not proceed with any travel plans in the affected areas now through Tuesday, or you could put yourself in great danger. Prepare for power outages both during the storm and in the days after it.
The full forecast for Winter Storm Juno can be found below the radar.
Winter Storm Juno is transforming from a clipper-type system, which brought a few inches of snow to the Midwest Sunday, into a major coastal storm late Monday into Tuesday as it intensifies rapidly just off the Atlantic coast.
The heaviest snowfall amounts from Juno are expected from far eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey to New England. Here is what can be expected in the Northeast:
Monday evening through overnight: Juno’s peak impacts begin and continue through the overnight from parts of eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey through New England. Snow and high winds will create blizzard conditions, making travel very dangerous or impossible. Snowfall rates of 2+ inches per hour are possible along with thunder and lightning.
Tuesday: Peak impacts from Juno continue throughout the day over parts of southern and eastern New England. Travel will continue to be dangerous or impossible. Intense snowfall rates continue through the morning in parts of New Jersey and the New York City area, but snow should diminish or even end by sunset there.
Tuesday night through Wednesday: Snow and wind continues in New England, winding down from south to north by Wednesday early morning.
Sustained winds will likely be 20 to 40 mph in a large area with gusts up to 55 mph. Even higher winds are expected in eastern Massachussetts, including Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard where gusts of 70+ mph are possible.
Hurricane force wind warnings are in effect for portions of the nearshore waters around Cape Cod and the nearby islands. Seas could exceed 25 feet and winds could gust over 80 mph over water, making this an extremely dangerous storm for mariners. Vessels should remain in port.
The winds from Juno will have several impacts:
1. As mentioned before, strong winds will combine with the snow to produce low visibility and blizzard or near-blizzard conditions Monday night through Tuesday night.
2. The winds could also cause tree damage and power outages from northern and central New Jersey to parts of New England. As our power outage threat map shows, widespread outages are possible in a swath from Long Island to southern and eastern New England. These outages may last several days.
3. Winds will pile up water from the Atlantic Ocean and produce destructive coastal flooding. Here are the impacts according to storm surge expert Michael Lowry of The Weather Channel:
4. Huge waves will likely lead to beach erosion, and freezing spray from the crashing waves could lead to significant ice accumulations on buildings and other objects along the immediate shoreline in parts of New England. These waves will also combine with the storm surge to worsen structural damage along exposed east-facing coastlines, especially in Massachusetts.

Juno was named by the winter storm naming committee at The Weather Channel on Sunday morning. The name Juno is from Roman mythology, a goddess who looked after the women of Rome.
