Upstate New York hit with 20 inches of snow

The cold and windy weather across much of the eastern U.S. is expected to abate some going into the middle of the week as the strong surface low over northeast Canada weakens and moves away, according to National Weather Service.

Heavy snow over upstate New York has been impressive with some areas getting over 20 inches of snow over the past 2 days.  This is also expected to decrease through Tuesday with some lingering snow showers expected over this region. After a brief period of dry weather, another Pacific storm system is forecast to reach the West Coast by Tuesday evening and bring moderate to heavy rain from central California to Washington state.  Heavy snow is likely for the Cascades and eventually the northern Rockies as the moisture moves farther inland.
