What area will be most affected?
As of Thursday morning, the track of the storm shows central and eastern Long Island to New England could be hardest hit.
CNNmeteorologist Brandon Miller said: “The models continue to show a nor’easter with blockbuster potential for the weekend, mainly late Friday through Saturday.
“This storm is likely to strengthen at a rate, and to an intensity, equivalent to only the most powerful hurricanes, so the high-end potential of this storm cannot be overstated.
“But with nor’easters, like in real estate, it will all come down to location, location, location.”
