Around 500,000 people are still under winter weather alerts Tuesday in the interior Northeast from northeast Pennsylvania into upstate New York. Another 2 to 3 inches of snow is possible over central-upstate New York on Tuesday night.
Wind alerts along the coastal towns have ended as the strongest winds have subsided, but the area will remain breezy on Tuesday.
There is a gale warning from New York’s Long Island northward along the New England coast. The weather service says during the warning, which is in effect until 8 a.m. ET., some areas will see seas as high as 15 feet.
“Strong winds will cause hazardous seas which could capsize or damage vessels and reduce visibility.” the weather service said.
Wind advisories in northern Pennsylvania and western and central New York will continue into Tuesday night, as winds could gust to 40 mph.
While the storms often impact coastal areas, this week’s nor’easter tracked much farther to the west, meaning precipitation in coastal cities arrived as rain while inland locations received heavy, wet snow.
Before arriving to the Northeast, the storm dropped heavy rain across the Carolinas and mid-Atlantic coast.
