...BLIZZARD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM SATURDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH SUNDAY MORNING...

A BLIZZARD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM SATURDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH SUNDAY MORNING.

SNOW WILL BEGIN LATE SATURDAY AFTERNOON...AND BECOME HEAVY AT TIMES SATURDAY NIGHT. NORTHEAST WINDS WILL ALSO INCREASE SATURDAY NIGHT TO 25 TO 35 MPH WITH GUSTS UP TO 50 MPH...CAUSING BLIZZARD CONDITIONS ALONG WITH CONSIDERABLE BLOWING AND DRIFTING OF SNOW.

BY THE TIME THE SNOW ENDS LATE SUNDAY MORNING...ACCUMULATIONS SHOULD AVERAGE 8 TO 12 INCHES...WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE. THE HIGHEST TOTALS ARE MOST LIKELY TO OCCUR IN AND NEAR NEW YORK CITY...AND ACROSS WESTERN LONG ISLAND.

A BLIZZARD WATCH MEANS THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR FALLING AND OR BLOWING SNOW WITH STRONG WINDS AND EXTREMELY POOR VISIBILITIES. THIS CAN LEAD TO WHITEOUT CONDITIONS AND MAKE TRAVEL VERY DANGEROUS.

Woman acquitted of injuring boyfriend’s testicle
Eds: Note contents.
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — A jury has acquitted a woman of twisting her 73-year-old boyfriend’s testicle so hard it had to be removed. He testified he still loved her and was able to walk off the pain.
The Spokane County Superior Court jury acquitted Jane “Doobie” Pemberton on Thursday of assault, harassment and attempted robbery charges in the Sept. 18 incident involving William Boomer in Boomer’s home.
Boomer, a retired adult bookstore owner, testified during the trial this week that Pemberton assaulted him after he refused to give her $45.
Assistant Public Defender Matthew Harget argued that Pemberton, 52, twisted on the man’s crotch only as a last resort to ward off a sexual assault by a drunken, Viagra-popping boyfriend.
“The grabbing of the groin was the only thing that would stop him,” Harget said. “This is a man who claims he can barely walk, but he’s healthy enough to have sex four or five times a night.”
Harget asked Boomer how much the twisting, for what he testified was an estimated 35 to 40 minutes, must have hurt. “Actually, it was not anything that you can’t walk off,” Boomer replied.
Harget told The Associated Press on Friday that Pemberton squeezed Boomer’s testicle for a couple of minutes, causing an injury, and that Boomer didn’t undergo surgery to remove the testicle until two days later.
Deputy Spokane County Prosecutor Mark Lindsey told jurors Pemberton was the aggressor, even though Boomer said he still loves Pemberton and apologized to her for having to face trial.
“Mr. Harget argues to you that Viagra and alcohol somehow makes some guys feel like they’re Superman. On his best day ... Mr. Boomer has never been Superman. And Viagra is not going to make him one.”
It was the second time Pemberton was tried on the charges. Her first trial ended in a hung jury.
