A potentially record-breaking amount of snow is expected to fall on New York City Tuesday. The National Weather service issued blizzard warnings for the metropolitan area of New York as well as areas of Long Island and parts of northern and southern New York State Monday, with some areas expected to receive record-breaking amounts of snow.

Snowstorm Stella, which is expected to arrive in the Empire State Monday around 7 p.m., will dump about 2- to 4 inches of snow per hour, resulting in New York City receiving more than a foot of snow while areas in the north and west of the state may receive as much as 20 inches.

The snowstorm could shatter winter weather records in New York City. The most snowfall to date in New York was during the Great Blizzard of 1888 when 21 inches of snow was dumped on the city. Some areas in the Northeast saw as much as 55 inches of snow during the two-day storm, which started March 10, 1988, and brought hurricane-strength winds along with the heavy snow, resulting in more than 400 deaths in the Northeast overall, according to History.com.

The next major snowstorm didn’t hit until March 8, 1941; however, conditions weren’t nearly as brutal. During the 1941 snowstorm, New York City received just 18 inches of snow.

In the 1990s New York faced another massive snowstorm when more than 11 inches blanketed the Big Apple on March 13, 1993, while some areas of New York state received more than 40 inches of snow. Although the snow accumulation wasn’t as high as the Great Blizzard, wind speeds reached 71-100 miles an hour, causing electrical outages in nearly 2.5 million homes. Roads and airports were completely shut down, leaving thousands of people stranded on the island, and at least 33 people died due to the severe storm.

So far in 2017, the most snowfall New York City received was during a February storm that dumped about 10.9 inches of snow across the city.
