A rare October Nor’easter that is forecast to hit at least 10 states from North Carolina to Maine starting Saturday morning has the potential to be the biggest October storm in New York City history, according to AccuWeather.com senior meteorologist Paul Walker.

“The record for snow in October for New York City is .8 inches set on Oct. 30, 1925,” said Walker. “This has the possibility to beat that.”

Inland communities will bear the brunt of the storm with heavy wet snow forecast to fall starting in the afternoon from Virginia, West Virginia and Pennsylvania to Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.

Areas near Springfield, Mass., could see as much as 10 inches of snow.

Major cities up and down the coast can expect to see a chilly rain on Saturday morning that changes to snow in the evening.
