Winter Storm Toby Slams Mid-Atlantic, Northeast with Snowy Blast

Many New Yorkers woke up Wednesday to the fourth nor'easter this month, with heavy, wet snow and strong winds disrupting travel around the region. Heaviest amounts are projected to fall between 2:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. on Saturday. On Wednesday, a woman died when a van overturned in a weather-related crash.

The National Weather Service has reports of over 19 inches in Bay Shore and Patchogue (PACH'-awg).

It's too early to say whether a full-blown snow removal effort will be needed, he said.

The bad news? "There is another system that we're watching for Saturday night which could bring another bit of wintry weather for the season", the meteorologist said.

The latest storm lost some punch as it rolled into New England on Thursday. Port Richmond on Staten Island got 13.8 inches.

The mixed bag of precipitation continues to move through the area after this afternoon and turns heavy between 1am-7am Wednesday.

Major power outages are possible, especially given the hit the power grid took during the earlier March nor'easter.

Generally we are looking at five to nine inches of snow, but there may be pockets of eight to 12 inches, just west of the city in some of the same areas as a week ago.


The storm also cut power to than 90,000 customers from the mid-Atlantic to New England, including 87,448 in New Jersey, 3,614 in NY and 2,967 in Delaware.

Murphy had also declared a state of emergency Tuesday night ahead of the storm.

Dozens of schools had cancelled classes for Thursday due to treacherous travel conditions in many areas, while others planned delayed openings.

More than 400 flights have been canceled Thursday in and out of Newark Liberty International and New York's LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy International airports, according to FlightAware, a Houston-based tracking service.

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.

And those of you wondering what happened to Spring, like all good Cincinnati weather, we won't have to wait long for a change.
