It would be the fourth winter storm to hit the Northeast since March 2 and could add to this month’s tally of thousands of grounded flights, millions of power outages and feet of snow from New Jersey to Massachusetts.

“As for how much and exactly where, that remains pretty vague at this point,” Ryan said by telephone.
