Frigid cold is nipping across the Northeast, as New England digs out following the region's fourth winter storm in a month. Strong winds were expected to continue today, reducing visibility, creating drifts and complicating an ongoing cleanup effort.
Temperatures across the Midwest and Northeast have plunged below zero, including minus-26 in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
Heavy snow and ice was expected in the south-central United States from eastern Kansas to the Mid-Atlantic coast. The wintry mix was producing treacherous travel conditions in Oklahoma, Arkansas and Tennessee.
Snow was expected today in cities such as St. Louis, Cincinnati, Washington, Philadelphia, New York City and Little Rock, Arkansas. An even colder air mass lurked behind the storm system, with record lows possible in the coming days.
Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, speaking during a news conference Sunday, said more than seven feet of snow has fallen on the city since mid-January.
“This is historic. We've never seen this type of snow in this type of period in the history of this city,” Walsh said.
More than 58 inches of snow has fallen in Boston during February, making it the city's snowiest month on record since the 1800s. Some areas of New England reported nearly two feet of snow from the recent storm.
