Nor'easter leaves one dead after pummeling Northeast with heavy snow

Branches fell on a truck and power lines near the house

Timing, temperature and type of storm all contributed to a dud of a winter storm across much of the Susquehanna Valley on Wednesday.

The National Weather Service explained that it infrequently occurs during a fierce snowstorm in a similar way to a thunderstorm with rain. "Trying to pinpoint where the gradient is really challenges forecasters".

"During early next week, the storm will reach the southern Atlantic coast and may continue to head eastward and well out to sea or may reorganize, strengthen and turn northward", according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dan Pydynowski.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy told reporters Thursday afternoon the state remains under a state of emergency. Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories are in place from eastern Pennsylvania through the Northeast.

A pedestrian walks through Central Park during a snow storm in NY on Wednesday. Numerous trees and power lines were brought down due to the weight of the snow.

Back in ME, less snow will fall along the immediate coast, where closer to 6 inches is expected, Dumont said.

"When you have a transfer of energy there's usually an area in between with a dropoff in terms of snowfall amounts".

The Cape and Islands were mostly saved from this storm's wrath, but the nor'east dropped between 5 and 20 inches on other parts of the state. With upper level energy exiting off the coast working through the day Friday, expect the snow shower chance to end and sunshine should mix with clouds.

Meanwhile, at Jones Beach, the big concern was wind and strong surf.

Amtrak said it expected to operate on a reduced schedule with certain branches suspended until further notice.

The second major storm in less than a week is moving up the East Coast, dumping heavy snow and knocking out power to hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses from Pennsylvania to New England.

Fox News Senior Meteorologist Janice Dean said the storm could drop at least a foot of snow on northern New Jersey, the lower Hudson River Valley, northern CT and western MA.

Damaging winds are in the forecast with gusts of up to 60 mph at Cape Cod, 45 mph at the Jersey shore and 30 mph around suburban Philadelphia.

Con Edison has reported over 12,000 customers without power in Westchester County and almost 500 customers in New York City while NYSEG has reported over 7,000 customers without power in Westchester County and almost 3,000 in Putnam.

A teacher was struck by lightning while holding an umbrella on bus duty outside a school in Manchester Township, New Jersey, police said.

Montville, New Jersey - about 32 miles (52 kilometers) northwest of Manhattan - got 26.8 inches, the National Weather Service said.

Pydynowski offered some hope, saying that the most likely scenario is a close call but no major storm for the Interstate 95 corridor from Philadelphia to New York City and Boston.

More than two dozen flights to and from the Portland International Jetport have been canceled or delayed.
