A traveler walks in the economic parking lot at O'Hare International Airport in Chicago on Thursday, Jan. 2, 2014. Another one to three inches of snow could fall across the Chicago metro area Thursday with even more falling in the southern part of the region, according to the National Weather Service.

HARTFORD, Conn. — Light snow was falling Thursday in parts of the Northeast as a winter storm bore down on the region, promising significant snowfall, strong winds and frigid temperatures that will make commutes hazardous for the first work day of the new year.

Snow began falling overnight in parts of New England and New York, but the real brunt of the storm wasn't expected to hit until later Thursday. As much as a foot of snow or more was forecast for some areas overnight Thursday into Friday, and temperatures were expected to plummet, with some areas seeing highs just above zero, according to the National Weather Service.

"There will be travel problems," said Hugh Johnson, a weather service meteorologist in Albany, N.Y. "It will be very cold."

Up to 14 inches of snow is forecast for the Boston area and the National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for Long Island, where 8 to 10 inches of snow could fall and winds could gust up to 45 mph, from Thursday evening into Friday afternoon.
