A quick-hitting, but intense snowfall slammed the Northeast on Saturday. The storm came right on the heels of a post-Christmas storm, which dumped heavy snow across the region.
Saturday's snow caused slow and treacherous travel on the ground, while also resulting in flight delays and cancellations for airline passengers.
Portions of the Pennsylvania Turnpike and the New York Thruway were shut down temporarily due to hazardous travel and resultant accidents.
In New Hampshire, a chain reaction pileup involving 20 vehicles on Interstate 93 left five people injured, according to the Associated Press.

Besides interrupting travel, the storm also set a few snowfall records. Bridgeport, Conn., received 4.8 inches of snow on Saturday, breaking old record of 3.1 inches set in 1959.
Pittsburgh, Pa., got 4.4 inches of snow on Saturday, shattering the old record of 2.1 inches set in 1935.
Even Washington, D.C., which was only received light snow at the onset of the storm before changing to rain, set a new record for Saturday. A total of 0.9 of an inch of snow broke the old record of 0.3 of an inch set in 1993.
New England was hit the hardest by heavy snow over the weekend, including portions of Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine. Nearly two feet of snow piled up over some communities in northeastern Maine.
