Nor'easter Bringing Heavy Snow, Rain, High Winds, Coastal Flooding to East Coast

A nor'easter is hammering parts of the Northeast with heavy snow, rain, damaging winds and coastal flooding, and its effects are expected to linger into Wednesday.

Sage's latest status and storm reports: Snow is falling from northeast Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey into much of central and eastern New York and western and northern  New England. In some areas, snow was falling at the rate of 1 to 2 inches per hour Tuesday morning, according to the National Weather Service. Closer to the coast, soaking rainfall is impacting southeastern New England, but some of this region should see a changeover to snow later in the day, including Boston.

Power outages and downed trees have been reported in parts of central and western Massachusetts. Parts of neighboring Vermont, southern New Hamsphire and the Hudson Valley north of New York City have also had power outages, according to

Multiple locations have picked up a foot or more of snowfall from the storm in western Massachusetts, Vermont and eastern New York. A few locations in western Massachusetts and southern Vermont have even picked up over 20 inches of snow, already. Up to 6 inches of snow has fallen in the Poconos of northeast Pennsylvania, and a few 6 to 7 inches totals have come in from higher elevations in far northern New Jersey.

Winter weather alerts are in effect for parts of multiple states: The National Weather Service has issued winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories for much of New York (not including New York City) as well as for most of New England and northeast Pennsylvania.

Tuesday: Snow, heavy at times, will fall in most of New England and New York today. Rain will mix with snow and then change to all snow in southern and coastal parts of New England, including Boston. Strong winds are expected, particularly in coastal New England, but also in much of the Northeast.

Much of the rest of the Northeast could see wind gusts up to 45 mph, at times, Tuesday into Wednesday. Those gusts, combined with the weight of heavy, wet snow, will lead to some tree damage and power outages in areas of significant snow accumulation, especially in the interior Northeast.
