NEW YORK – It’s been nearly two years, but record snowless streaks have finally ended after more than 700 days in New York City, Philadelphia and Baltimore as a storm system moving up the East Coast brings winter weather to millions of people along the Interstate 95 corridor from the mid-Atlantic to the Northeast and New England.

Baltimore broke its streak by Monday night, halting the record number of days without an inch of snow in a calendar day at 716 days. By Tuesday morning, Baltimore reported receiving 4.1 inches of snow.
Up next was Philadelphia, which also snapped its snowless streak record at 715 days without 1 inch of snow falling in a single day. By Tuesday morning, the City of Brotherly Love picked up 3.3 inches of snow. It’s the first time the city has picked up an inch of snow or more in a calendar day since Jan. 29, 2022.
New York City finally got in on the action on Tuesday morning. The National Weather Service says Central Park picked up 0.4 inches of snow on Monday, followed by 1.2 inches of snow falling between midnight and 1 p.m. Tuesday, bringing the storm total to 1.6 inches of snow. Central Park is the official measuring site for New York City.
Snow to wind down Tuesday
The same area of low pressure that brought snow and ice to the South moved out of the region Monday, and as it did so, it allowed for a new area of low pressure to form off the East Coast and aim for the Northeast and New England.
As it moved up the coast, it brought snow to much of the Interstate 95 corridor from Washington to Boston.
Winter Storm Warnings remain in effect in northern Maine.
Winter Weather Advisories remain in effect from Virginia to northern New England, including in Philadelphia, New York City, Boston, Hartford in Connecticut, Providence in Rhode Island, Albany in New York and Portland in Maine.
Snow totals so far
The highest snow total so far has been reported at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) in New Jersey. The airport has received 2.1 inches of snow.
John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) picked up 2 inches, and LaGuardia Airport (LGA) received 1.9 inches of snow.
Behind that, New York City's Central Park reported 1.6 inches of snow.
How much more snow could fall?
Additional snow totals will vary across the region by the time the system moves out of the area later Tuesday.
New York City, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania won't pick up any additional snow as most of the precipitation has changed over to rain.
Farther north, interior portions of the Northeast and New England could pick up an additional inch or so of new snow.
Areas where higher snow totals are possible will be found in New England and northern New York state.
