THE BRONX -

The nor'easter began impacting the region early Friday with strong winds, heavy rain and flooding to the Bronx.

Some commuters appeared unfazed by the storm, however News 12 meteorologists say it is only expected to intensify by afternoon before turning over to snow.

The storm is expected to create flooding along the coastal areas of the region due to heavy periods of rain during the day.
