(Newser) – The Northeast is preparing for an early taste of winter tomorrow: Central and western Massachusetts could see a foot of snow, reports the Boston Globe, and the governor of Connecticut has warned residents they might lose power. Much of the East Coast is in the path: Parts of Maine could get 6 inches, while higher elevations in Pennsylvania could get 10, notes AP. Higher temperatures in New York City mean the city will probably get only an inch, reports Bloomberg. But it will still be plenty cold for Occupy Wall Streeters now that their generators are gone.

"This is very, very unusual," says a National Weather Service meteorologist. "It has all the look and feel of a classic midwinter nor'easter. It's going to be very dangerous."
