ows clearing streets across the Northeastern United States Tuesday after a winter storm dumped snow from Virginia to Massachusetts. I'm Zach Goldman for Reuters in New York. The city actually missed the brunt of the bad weather. What was a blizzard warning downgraded to a winter weather advisory.
Still pretty disruptive here though, the city closed all public schools. This is the largest school district in the country. And large sections of the subway are still not functioning. The city is expected to get between four and eight inches of snow. That's much less than the two feet that was predicted, but you can see it's still coming down.
Air travel across the region on hold with more than 5,500 flights cancelled. In Connecticut, a statewide travel ban still in effect as of Tuesday morning, parts of that state bracing for up to 18 inches of snow. A nine car pile-up was reported on the I-95 near Fairfield. Boston bracing for more than a foot of snow.
Washington, DC, a city notorious for functioning badly even with small amounts of bad weather, expected up to five inches. The storm comes near the end of an unusually mild winter along much of the East Coast, with below normal snowfalls in New York and Washington.
