U.S. East Coast Facing Blizzard as Snow Grounds Flights

A storm along the U.S. East Coast brought snow and wind chills to the region, threatening blizzard conditions and disrupting travel amid highway closures and thousands of flight cancellations.

Boxford, north of Boston, received 21 inches (53 centimeters) of snow as of 9:12 p.m. yesterday, while New York City’s Central Park got 5 inches as of 3:45 a.m., the National Weather Service said. Boston may receive as much as 14 inches and its western and southern suburbs might get as much as 18 inches, said Kim Buttrick, a meteorologist with the service in Taunton, Massachusetts.
