Colder air returns in wake of major East Coast storm


NBC4 Jobs

The midday sunshine Sunday was just a tease, when we briefly enjoyed above-normal temperatures in the mid-50s, under a rare sunny sky in central Ohio.

Low pressure over the lower Great Lakes transitioned to an East Coast winter storm Monday, drawing in colder air and additional moisture, with a mix of rain and snow showers.

Temperatures overnight will dip into the low across the Buckeye State, potentially creating a few slick spots after midnight.

A serious ice storm in northern Pennsylvania, northern New Jersey and southeastern New York caused widespread power outages and accidents late Sunday, which turned to snow Monday morning.

Accumulations away from the coast will range from 5 to 10 inches from northeastern Pennsylvania to New England, with amounts of 10 to 20 inches already blanketing an area from upstate New York to the mountains of western and northern New England.

This coast-to-coast storm reached California on Nov. 26, and proceeded to dump 10 to 30 inches of snow in a swath from the southern Rockies to the Upper Midwest through the holiday weekend.
