A fast-moving storm will deliver some snow to New York and other East Coast cities this weekend before turning into rain and slush.

The storm will begin as snow in Washington late Sunday and reach New York overnight into Monday, according to Frank Pereira, a forecaster at the U.S. Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Maryland. Washington could get as much as 4 inches (10 centimeters) of snow, while Boston and New York may see closer to an inch or two before temperatures climb.
