New York Gets First Big Snow Storm

After pounding the Miswest and South and putting a big cramp in holiday travel, the winter storm streaking across the U.S. hit the Northeast on Thursday. Heavy snow fell through the night and early morning across New York State and Vermont in the first major winter storm this season for the region.

"National Weather Service spokesman David Roth said the Northeast's heaviest snowfall would be in northern Pennsylvania, upstate New York and inland sections of several New England states before the storm ended Friday morning and headed to Canada," as reported NBC Bay Area.

Furthermore, according to Blue Channel 24, "While the East Coast’s largest cities – New York, Philadelphia and Boston – saw mostly high winds and cold rain, other areas experienced a messy mix of rain and snow that slowed commuters and those still heading home from holiday trips."
