A storm like this on the tail end of the other two we have had isn't great for some people.

He thought the snow looked mushy "which means it's slippery as the dickens".

ME was bracing for 12 to 18 inches of snow, said James Brown, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service.

Amtrak says train service between the cities will be halted for the remainder of Tuesday.

Accumulations are expected to be minimal in New York City and New Jersey, but the hardest hit areas could see upwards of a foot of snow.

The rest of New England was under a winter storm warning, and a winter weather advisory blanketed most of NY and portions of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and North Carolina.

Newsday says road conditions deteriorated quickly before sunrise Tuesday as wet, heavy snow accumulated in the Town of Brookhaven. Winter weather advisories remain in effect for several coastal ME counties until 8 a.m. Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service. In Franklin, Massachusetts, at least 23 inches of snow was reported while East Killingly, Connecticut, saw 20 inches and Kezar Falls, Maine, reported 20 inches.

Schools across ME have called for early dismissals or closed in anticipation of slippery roads and poor visibility during the Tuesday afternoon commute.

Janice James' Osterville house on Cape Cod was in the dark again after losing power for three days in the last storm.

There was barely enough snow early Tuesday to coat lawns and sand beaches, yet winds near hurricane force were lashing the peninsula.

The storm was slowly tapering off overnight into Wednesday, but it left about 218,000 power outages in MA as of Tuesday evening, according to the state's Emergency Management Agency. "I didn't have to go through the last two nor'easters so this still feels like fun".

CBS News weather producer David Parkinson says Boston could see about a foot of snow, with up to 18 inches along the southern coast of MA and in the Merrimack Valley.

Communities across the region closed schools for the day and issued on-street parking bans. Unlike the previous nor'easter, this storm targeted areas closer to the coast with up to two feet of snow.

By Wednesday morning, lingering light snow will continue for most of northern NY and into New England.

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for much of the MA coast, a winter storm warning for most of New England and a winter weather advisory for portions of New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

The storm was expected to last through most of Tuesday, disrupting road and air travel. Only minor coastal flooding is expected.
