Low pressure will take shape east of Florida during the day Wednesday and then rapidly strengthen as it lifts north to a position off the New England coast on Thursday and into the Canadian maritimes Thursday night.

The National Weather Service tweeted Wednesday that snow, ice, strong winds, and flooding in coastal areas will plague much of the East Coast, spanning from Florida all the way to New England.

ABC NewsSnowfall totals for the East Coast in the next 36 to 48 hours will span from an inch or two, up to the heaviest amounts in New England and eastern Long Island, where locally 1 foot of snow is possible.

Winter is just two weeks old, and the coldest weather during it is expected each year late in January, and into the first week or two of February.

The major winter storm will continue to impact temperatures in Florida all the way up to ME which is expecting blizzard conditions.

"Winter storm watches and warnings have been issued as far south as parts of north Florida, coastal Georgia, and the low country of SC, including the cities of Savannah, Ga". The weather service said precipitation in the Florida city had almost ended by 9 a.m., but places to the east were still receiving freezing rain, sleet and snow.

Most of the cancellations were in New Jersey, Boston and NY, which are seeing snowfall rates of up to 3 inches (7.62 centimeters) an hour and wind gusts up to 80 miles (128 kilometers) per hour.

Early Thursday morning, a powerful winter storm hit New York City.

The New York City Department of Education said public schools would be closed Thursday and most likely Friday due to the severe weather.

"Driving conditions will remain hazardous over the coming days, with black ice an ongoing concern through the weekend", Cooper said, adding the storm has caused hundreds of auto accidents. As it does so, it will undergo a rapid intensification, or as it's called in meteorology, bombogenesis. So large is the storm's circulation it's expected to suck cold air from the Arctic that will bring on record cold temperatures in the northeast and Mid-Atlantic.
