Two separate storms from the Midwest and the Atlantic coast converged just in time for a white Christmas morning to unfold across the northeastern United States.

After creating a white Christmas Eve in the Midwest, snow blanketed the ground from western Pennsylvania and New York to Massachusetts and Maine. Windswept snow is expected to spread across New England on Christmas Day.

The snowstorm can unleash more than 6 inches of snow in upstate New York and northern New England.

The snow is expected to impact travel with slippery and icy roadways, and some accidents have already been reported in New York.

Even as the snow stops falling, motorists should use caution as strong, biting winds will blow and drift the snow around. That will further reduce visibility and undo the work by road crews.
