Strong winds were also experienced with the storm. Gusts above 50 mph created blowing and drifting snow, and additional power issues. A few advisories remained in New England for this evening, with the only Winter Storm Warnings in West Virginia where heavy snow fell in the Cumberland Mountains.
As the low continues to move into Canada, snowfall will diminish. Additional accumulations will be minor in most areas.
