Heavy rain hit the Northeast on Sunday with over an inch falling in the tri-state area of New York and Connecticut, breaking records. Now, the cold side of the system is impacting the region with high elevation snow and cold rain closer to the coast. The worst of the rain is behind us and thankfully power alerts weren't as severe as anticipated. Still, as of 12 PM ET on Monday there were about 25k customers without power.
Rain and snow will continue through midday as the entire low pressure system responsible for the wet weather slowly moves offshore. By sundown most of the moisture will be over with just a few lingering snow showers for northern Maine. Snow totals were up over half a foot through northern New York and New England, which certainly has given a boost to the ski resorts in the area.
Over 4" of rainfall fell from New Jersey to coastal Maine! A few flood alerts remain through the day today as rain pushes offshore, but the heaviest of the moisture is done at this point. Still, rivers, creeks and streams will be running high so please use caution.
The other thing this front has brought is blustery conditions! Temperatures are about 30° cooler compared to record highs on Sunday and winds have maxed out between 20-30 mph! It will definitely feel more like December today compared to the weekend.
