Parts of the Northeast are predicted to get up to a foot of snow this weekend, which would likely -- and unsurprisingly -- set records for October snowfall in many locations. Weather.com says the biggest snowfall will hit "west and northwest of the I-95 corridor" on Saturday but cities from Philadelphia to Boston could expect some as snowfall as well. If measurable snow does fall in New York before Monday, it would be the first such instance since 1952. So if you're planning on Occupying wherever, or even just attending a party dressed as a scantily-clad pumpkin, keep an eye on the forecast and adjust plans accordingly.
