1. New York May Get 16 Inches of Snow as Storm Imperils Post-Christmas Travel

New York City may get its biggest snowfall of the season tomorrow, with as much as 16 inches forecast along with possible blizzard conditions, as Christmas travelers try to make their way home. The snow is expected to fall in the New York area beginning late tomorrow morning into Monday, with sustained winds of as much as 30 mph (48 kph) and gusts of as much as 50 mph, limiting visibility, AccuWeather said. Boston could see 12 to 18 inches of snowfall along with wind gusts of as much as 60 miles per hour, starting tomorrow night. "This could be a major headache once you get to Philadelphia and points north," said Dave Samuhel, a meteorologist with AccuWeather.com in State College, Pennsylvania. The winter storm that is headed to the Northeast has dropped four inches (10 centimenters) of snow in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and 10 inches is expected in Asheville, North Carolina, Samuhel said. The storm is making its way north today and tomorrow.

Roy Neuberger, a co-founder of money manager Neuberger Berman who traded stocks until he was 101 and was a collector of such American artists as Jackson Pollock, Georgia O´Keefe and Edward Hopper, has died. He was 107. He died of natural causes today at his New York home, said his son, Jim Neuberger. "He got to Wall Street in 1929, a few months before the crash. He was 25," his son said.
