Snow accumulated overnight of just a tenth of an inch in New York, and it likely to taper off by about 8 a.m., according to Brian Ciemnecki, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Upton. The brunt of the storm hit further south, with Washington, D.C., Maryland, Philadelphia, and southern Jersey being hit. Ice is expected in southeast as well. But that doesn’t mean winter is over yet. The highs will be in mid-20, but will feel more like 10 degrees, Ciemnecki said. Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Comments Comments section is temporarily on hold. Here’s why.
