The Weather Channel
Snow and ice will snarl travel across parts of the Northeast early this week from a storm system that has also brought snow to the West, Plains and upper Midwest over the past several days. The first accumulating snow of the season is expected for areas from Philadelphia to New York City to Boston
The Weather Channel has named this system Winter Storm Ezekiel.
Snow is falling from portions of Pennsylvania into New York and New England. Sleet or freezing rain is mixing in with the snow in some areas.
Icy roadways contributed to numerous accidents Sunday on Interstate 84 in Pike County, Pennsylvania, between Scranton and the New York state line, according to a National Weather Service report. Interstate 81 was closed near Castle Creek, New York, just north of Binghamton, late Sunday morning because of icy conditions; the interstate was reopened by mid-afternoon.
The speed limit has been reduced on many highways across the Northeast due to the widespread snow and ice in the region.
Farther west, snow showers and gusty winds also continue in the northern Great Lakes.
Winter storm warnings, winter storm watches and winter weather advisories have been issued by the National Weather Service across a broad area from the northern Great Lakes to the Northeast and southward into the central Appalachians.
The worst conditions are likely in areas where winter storm warnings are in effect. Some locations in these warnings may be impossible to travel through. Albany and Syracuse, New York; Allentown and Scranton, Pennsylvania; and Concord and Manchester, New Hampshire, are among the cities under a winter storm warning.
