This is the same system that brought widespread rain and a few severe thunderstorms to the mid-Atlantic and Northeast on Sunday, prompting multiple delays during the NFL game between the Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers from Acrisure Stadium in Pittsburgh because of thunder and lightning in the area.
The highest snowfall total was 17.2 inches at Mount Washington, New Hampshire. Up to 14 inches was measured near Madrid, Maine, and Exeter, New Hampshire, while 12.3 inches of snowfall piled up near Greensboro, Vermont.
According to PowerOutage.US, more than 36,000 people in the region were without power Monday morning as the weight of the wet snow brought down tree branches and power lines in some areas.
Early in the day, Maine had the highest number of power outages, with nearly 25,000 customers without electricity.
Power outage numbers continued to drop throughout the day as the snow tapered off from west to east and crews worked to restore electricity.
The snow was heavy and wet, making it more difficult to shovel and adding increased stress to trees and power lines, which created the threat of scattered power outages until the winter storm exited the region late Monday.
