First Alert Forecast Much Cooler Temperatures On The Way

The storm's exact timing and total snowfall remained uncertain as of Saturday night, but a National Weather Service meteorologist said the storm is expected to reach Portland by late Sunday evening.

SUNDAY: A wintry mix of rain and snow.

The National Weather Service in Wyoming reports 4 inches (10 centimeters) of snow fell in Cheyenne from 7 p.m. Friday through 10 a.m. Saturday on top of a foot (30 centimeters) of snow that fell before Thanksgiving.

Roads were closed Saturday across eastern and southern Wyoming due to whiteout conditions.

The winter storm, located over the central U.S. at that time, brought with it heavy snow to the northern Plains and Midwest, Brink said.

Dozens of auto crashes and hundreds of vehicle spinouts occurred Friday night and Saturday morning in the metro area as sleet, snow, rain and wind hit the region.

"Troopers are ready to assist residents and motorists across the state both on and off of the highways throughout this busy travel weekend", State Police Superintendent, Colonel Patrick Callahan said, who also said the state emergency operations center would be open as of noontime Sunday, in constant contact with emergency coordinators in all 21 counties. The waves caused some street flooding in Canal Park.

The storm's death toll went up on Sunday.

Police reportedly found other "unknown devices" in Cyr's home that prompted police to call the Maine State Police Bomb Squad. And in October previous year a man in OR was charged after fortifying his home "like a scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark".

The heaviest rain and strongest winds for this storm will be later tonight through Sunday morning.

Blizzard conditions Saturday are buffeting the High Plains and around Duluth.

"Please be patient with plow drivers as this is expected to be a historic storm, plowing could take longer from the amount of snow projected to fall", the city said.

At least 705 storm spreaders are "loaded'" and ready to go ahead of snowy weather expected in NY today and tomorrow, NYC Sanitation Department Commissioner Kathryn Garcia said Saturday at a press conference. "Help is coming (but) it may be a while. (Two-hour) waits common". We will continue to monitor the movement of this system from start to finish.

While Duluth and Cloquet may have seen some of the worst of the storm, there was hard travel elsewhere in the state. To the west, the Aitkin County Sheriff's Office reported Sunday morning that "travel in Aitkin County is not advised". The worst snow in the region will be north and west of NY that could get 6 to 12 inches and closer to a foot near Albany.

Northeastern Colorado roads were closed because of strong winds, blowing and drifting snow and poor visibility.

American Airlines has also issued a Winter Weather Alert for more than 40 airports including the NY and Philadelphia hubs, a release from the airline says.
