Northeast braces for weekend snow

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- A snow and ice storm headed for the Northeast is expected to slow weekend travel by air, rail and highway and has utilities and airports on alert.

The National Weather Service says 6 to 12 inches of snow are expected from Saturday to Sunday in New England. It says up to 14 inches are possible along the Maine coast but as little as 2 inches on Cape Cod. Areas north and west of New York City and interior Pennsylvania also could get 8 inches or more.

Sleet and freezing rain are expected.

The snow is expected to begin spreading from southwest to northeast early Saturday.
