Get ready for snow.

A winter storm is headed New York’s way, and some predictions estimate that half a foot might fall on the city.

The nor’easter, named Nemo, is the 14th named winter storm of the year, according to the Weather Channel.

Forecasters say as much as two feet of snow might fall, but probably in places other than in New England, such as Boston.

The National Weather Service reports that snow is likely Thursday night, beginning after 3 a.m. and becoming gusty with rain and snow throughout Sunday.
