ABC News’ Max Golembo reports:

Trick-or-treaters in the Northeast may need coats to go with their costumes if Mother Nature has her way. There are two storms heading towards New York City, Boston and Washington D.C., and each has the potential to bring the region its first snow of the season.

Part of the snowstorm that is bringing 1 -2 feet of snow to the Front Range of the Rockies will break off and move east, resulting  in snow for parts of New England and higher elevations in the interior Northeast on Thursday afternoon. Some inland areas could see 2-4 inches of snow by Thursday night.

Major East Coast cities will likely see chilly rain with temperatures in the 40′s and 50′s. The snow and rain will end Thursday night with colder and blustery conditions on Friday.

The second storm will be a Nor’easter that will likely bring New York City, Boston, Washington D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia their first snowflakes of the season on Saturday. The major cities should expect to receive mostly sprinkles and flurries, nothing more than a dusting.

The storm will develop early Saturday off the coast of the Carolinas and move up the Northeast during the day. The storm, depending on its route, may dump up to a foot of snow in the interior of the northeast.
