New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Boston, and Washington, DC, all dodged the worst of the East Coast blizzard Tuesday morning, as the most intense parts of the storm shifted west and away from the major urban centers.
The National Weather Servicelifted the blizzard warning for New York City, which is now expected to get only 4 to 6 inches of snow, mixed with sleet, on Tuesday. Boston is likely to get the most intense snowfall of the major East Coast urban centers, with up to a foot still possible.
Some less urban parts of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and Massachusetts are still set to get walloped by the storm, however. The historic, 24-inch-plus accumulations that had been predicted to break records for New York City are turning up in the Hudson Valley instead. Blizzard warnings remain in effect across much of those states.
New York City’s subways were running as of this writing, though with service suspended at above-ground stations.
Subway service continues to function normally in Boston, though the ferry and trolley service is suspended. Subways in Philadelphia and Washington, DC, are running with delays.
For the moment, all major airports along the East Coast are open, and flights are departing, though more than 5,000 flights were canceled across the Northeast.
