Super Bowl Snowstorm? One Model Suggests Something ‘Major’ On Way
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Don’t worry. At least not yet.
But one early weather projection is taking shape for Super Bowl weekend — and it doesn’t look good.
CBS 2 meteorologist Lonnie Quinn says one model suggests a system similar to this week’s snowstorm could hit the Tri-State area “within 48 hours” of Super Bowl XLVIII.
“If that holds true, this is a major player,” Quinn said on Wednesday night’s newscast, shortly after sharing the forecast with Mike Francesa on WFAN radio. “Not a small snowstorm, it would be a major player.”

The game between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks is scheduled for Feb. 2 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
Quinn, who’s known for rolling up his sleeves during bad weather, joked on Twitter that if the projection holds true, he may deliver next week’s Super Bowl forecast shirtless.
“One is, I’m not sure how reliable forecasts are this far out,” Goodell said in a New York Daily News interview. “And two is, we have a whole group of people that are getting the best information, have the right team together, to make sure we have appropriate information at the right time. There’s nothing I can do about that. Our team has been working to be prepared for all alternatives and I’m confident they will be.”
