Yet another snowstorm targeted the Northeast with areas from eastern upstate New York to New England and neighboring Canada in the bull's-eye.
Despite the storm occurring during the middle of March and the effects of a strong sun, a heavy accumulation will occur on roads in some areas, leading to travel disruptions, school closings and foiled plans.
During Monday night into Tuesday morning, heavy snow fell from the northern New York City suburbs to southern Quebec, hundreds of miles to the north.
The snow reached the western I-80 corridor in Pennsylvania by daybreak on Monday and the New York State Thruway and western Massachusetts by sunset on Monday. By the start of Tuesday, the snow began as far north as the St. Lawrence Valley and most of northern New England.

Widespread amounts of 6 to 12 inches is expected elsewhere across northern New England and the St. Lawrence Valley, including the cities of Burlington, Vt., Concord, N.H., and Caribou and Bangor, Maine.
Totals of 30 cm or more are possible for the neighboring Canadian cities of Montreal and Quebec City.
Some locations in the mountains can receive 18 inches or more from the storm.
Due to the time of year and warm air attempting to invade the storm from the south, some snow will cling to trees. As a result, there is a continuing risk of power outages in parts of upstate New York and New England.
Snow and sleet already fell in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., for a few hours Monday as the storm got under way. The snow and sleet quickly changed to rain, and it ended Tuesday morning.
In New York City, the period of snow Tuesday evening was brief, but heavy, and quickly coated some roadways.
The Tuesday morning commute in Boston will be a slippery one with snow and sleet expected. Around from 4 to 8 inches of snow has fallen around Boston with a foot falling on some of the suburbs before the storm moves away.
Springlike warmth will pour from the Plains to the East over the next few days before another winter storm unfolds at midweek.
The same system responsible for bringing rain to the Northwest over the weekend will deliver snow to the Rockies and Plains for the start of this week.
Although spring is on the horizon, the detrimental impacts of this year's harsh winter still loom as threats for roof collapses continue.
Despite a springlike start to the week, winter and substantial snow will make a comeback across the Midwest and Northeast at midweek.
Philadelphia will continue to experience a taste of spring before colder air and a winter storm arrive at midweek.
New York City will continue to experience a taste of spring before winter makes a comeback at midweek.
