New York City is facing its first significant winter storm of the season as a sprawling system rolls over the Northeast, threatening to snarl Friday morning’s commute and dump up to 5 inches (13 centimeters) of snow.

Winter storm warnings and weather advisories stretch from Kentucky to Maine, with the storm expected to start late Thursday night and continue through mid-morning, according to the National Weather Service. Models call for the system to reach a peak just as the morning commute starts, with flakes falling at more than 1 inch per hour. Winds will gust from 15 to 30 miles (24 to 48 kilometers) per hour.
