NEW YORK – Due to the eastern parts of Norway, the first major snowstorm of the season takes over the three-state area, which in some parts can fall up to a foot of snow, frosty temperatures, blowing winds and
the tin rain is in an even worse condition.
By early Thursday, it had dropped about 4-8 inches in five neighborhoods, Long Island and much of New Jersey. However, it was only 2-3 inches in some parts of the area.
The National Meteorological Service said 6.5 centimeters of snow fell in Central Park at 12:05 a.m. on Thursday and is more likely to accumulate before the end of the storm.
In just one day, Central Park obscured the total amount of snow it had seen in the entire 2019-2020 winter season.

The temperature doesn’t heat up in the afternoon, it only reaches peak 31 in the city, which prevents all snow from melting. The gusts of wind continue until morning, with single-digit wind cooling temperatures developing at many points in the tri-state region.
The brisk tempos continue over the weekend, maintaining a winter atmosphere in the area.
Power outages throughout the region
Al Edonso Quiroz, a spokesman for Con Edison, told PIX11 Morning News that the utility company was prepared for Wednesday’s storm, including more than 200 mutual aid staff from across the country ready to help ConEd crews.

Light snow was forecast between 1 and 3 p.m. Wednesday. Then, between 4pm and 6pm, significant snowfall began, moving from south to north, resulting in dangerous commuting during the evening rush. The snow continued continuously after 18 hours along with the strong wind.
