Second winter storm in a week heads to NY region

Second winter storm in a week heads to NY region”

Amtrak cancelled some of its Wednesday trains between Washington and Boston as well as some services in Pennsylvania, New York state and other areas of the Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic United States. Forecasters said areas west of the Interstate 95 corridor could easily get more than a foot of snow, with some places in northwestern New Jersey expected to receive up to 2 feet.

A mix of snow and light rain started falling before daybreak in many areas, but the precipitation was expected to turn soon to all snow in most areas and continue through the day. Pennsylvania and NY banned big rigs from some major highways as officials warned of a hazardous evening commute and urged people to stay off the roads.

NY and surrounding states were gearing up for a second winter storm within a week on Wednesday, with less wind but more snow predicted this time around as thousands remain without power from the last nor'easter.

20-30cm of wet, heavy snow, some of it accompanied by thunder and lightning, have been forecast for New York City and surrounding New Jersey and CT suburbs. "I'm happy it's not doing what they said it was going do". "All in all, it hasn't been a awful winter".

Transportation departments in Philadelphia and Boston loaded up salt trucks and pre-treated roads on Tuesday afternoon, and some airlines already were waiving ticket change fees for airports in the storm's projected path, such as Newark, Philadelphia, Boston and New York's JFK. "If Mother Nature wants to give us one last blast of winter, that's up to her", he said.

The heaviest snow is expected in ME, where up to 46cm is possible.

Utility workers took advantage of milder temperatures and sunshine to restore power to thousands of customers around America's storm-hit north-east. More than 90,000 homes and businesses remained without power Wednesday, mostly in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and NY. Snow clouds on Wednesday were throwing out the snow at up to three inches an hour. Gusts of up to 60 mph were forecast on Cape Cod, 45 mph at the Jersey shore and 30 mph around suburban Philadelphia. School districts and municipal operations from DE to CT closed.

The governors of New Jersey and Pennsylvania declared states of emergency, giving them access to support from the USA government if needed.
