The Latest: Wintry storm winding down in New England
BOSTON (AP) — The Latest on the winter storm in the Northeast (all times local):
A widespread storm that brought heavy snowfall across the Northeast in recent days is winding down.
The National Weather Service says the long-lasting storm is slowly moving out of the region Tuesday afternoon and should be in parts of Canada by nighttime.
The storm arrived in parts of the region on Sunday. It dumped more than two feet in parts of upstate New York, western Massachusetts and Vermont, but less than six inches along the coast on Tuesday.
In New Jersey, the storm has knocked out power to tens of thousands of residents.
The weather service says the rest of the work week is expected to be colder and drier, though parts of New England might see light rain or even snow Friday night.
The snowstorm that never seems to end rocked coastal New England at the height of the morning commute, prompting schools to close and causing air travel havoc.
The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning Tuesday for coastal areas of Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine and a winter weather advisory for southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
The wintry weather that moved into New England on Sunday night has already dropped more than two feet of snow in some areas of central Massachusetts, and 16 inches in Somers, Connecticut.
The Boston area only had about four inches of snow, but the weather made for a messy commute.
In New Jersey, Jersey Central Power and Light is reporting 36,552 homes and businesses are without electricity Tuesday.
