Winter Storm Rakes East Coast, Bringing Snow, Wind To Northeast

'Bomb cyclone' hits US East Coast energy, power supply

Blizzard conditions are possible in some areas, according to forecasters with the National Weather Service.

Thousands of flights have been canceled as a result, stranding travellers all over the US.

"Unless it is essential for you to be out on the roads, you should not be", Mr Cuomo said.

That mass of freezing Arctic air met a cyclone of warmer, moist air from the Atlantic Ocean, setting the stage for massive snowfall and blistering winds.

The storm caps a week of brutal cold across the nation that has left at least 17 people dead.

Weather forecasters had warned that the storm system could shift off its current track.

The storm has already led to the closure of roads in northern Florida and southeastern Georgia, where governor Nathan Deal declared a state of emergency in the coastal area.

The worst of the storm will be over by Saturday morning, but the cold weather will continue.

Excited residents snapped photos of themselves playing in the snow, and school was cancelled in much of the state. In Georgia, the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport - typically booming with tourists this time of year - closed on Wednesday due to severe winter weather conditions.

Steady snowfall blanketed Charleston, recording at least 5.3 inches on Wednesday. Six deaths were reported in Wisconsin, four in Texas, three in North Carolina, and one each in Ohio, Michigan, Missouri, North Dakota, South Carolina and Virginia.

Vehicles move along a snow and ice covered Interstate 26, near Savannah, Ga., on January 3, 2018.

U.S. Sen. Tim Scott made a decision to have some fun with the weather, tweeting video of himself being pulled along in the snow behind a vehicle while he knelt on a boogie board.

Lenore Correia, meteorologist at the National Weather Service, said snow totals were as expected, as they were predicting between 12 and 18 inches for Southern New England.

Snow was on the ground in every state along the Eastern Seaboard on Thursday morning, from Florida to ME, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

"There is moderate to heavy snow from Portsmouth, New Hampshire, all the way down to New York City", said Rob Carolan, a meteorologist at Hometown Forecast Services Inc.in Nashua, New Hampshire.

"We're just going to wait for it to melt", city resident Jessica Morse said as her husband used an oar to shovel the driveway and her child built a snowman with beach toys.

Gov. Charlie Baker says weather officials believe MA experienced the highest high tide on record in the state.

The winds can be strong enough to bring down trees and cause structural damage.

The fiercely cold wind accompanying winter storm Grayson will cause temperatures to drop as low as minus 40 degrees in some parts this weekend.

This term is almost the same as a bomb, but refers more specifically to a bomb's development-hence the inclusion of "genesis".

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scientists estimate the central pressure will drop below 950 millibars at its peak, making Grayson one of the strongest storms in the United States in recent history.
