  • Long Beach declares snow emergency

Spring weather is going to have to wait. Colder air spilling into the highland regions northwest of town helped quickly change things over from rain to sleet and in some cases snow.

A moisture-laden heavy wet snow is expected to spread into our area from the west later tonight, making travel very hard, as the snow adds up and complicated by strengthening east winds gusting over 30 miles per hour.

The snow, which tore through on Wednesday, is heading north, dropping some more snow in New England before it heads out.

"The last gasp is one final snow band on eastern Long Island", said Melissa DiSpigna, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Upton, New York.

In a rare treat for New York City students, public schools there joined scores of others in canceling classes Wednesday.

The cancellations piled on to thousands more cancelled flights due to an unrelenting series of late-winter storms. "The morning commute could see a little light snow, but the system is winding down".

"Winter Storm Warnings were issued earlier Tuesday for areas further to the northwest across the Maryland and West Virginia panhandles, where the potential for more than 6" of snow exists from the first storm alone.


That combination of heavy snow and powerful wind gusts could bring down tree limbs and power lines, spurring outages, the agency said.

The flight-tracking site FlightAware reported more than 3,000 canceled flights across the US on Wednesday, most in the Northeast.

Washington schools were also closed, and children in Philadelphia, parts of New Jersey and Pittsburgh also enjoyed a snow day.

Amtrak operated a reduced schedule on many lines, including its busy Northeast Corridor line between Washington, D.C., and Boston.

WHERE... Portions of east central and northeast Iowa and north central and northwest IL.

The fourth storm of the month, dubbed the "four'easter", continued to weaken overnight, with snowfall estimates across the state dropping and making way for a warmer Thursday. On New York's Long Island, Newsday reported that a woman was killed and five people were injured when a van overturned on a parkway.
