The worst of the winter weather is winding down along the U.S. East Coast after a quick-moving storm swept northeast, leaving thousands of customers without power and grounding flights.

Rain started to taper off in Washington and in New York’s Central Park, where temperatures reached 41 degrees Fahrenheit (5 Celsius) Monday, according to the National Weather Service. Drizzly skies and gusty winds were still sweeping Boston, while snow was reported in upstate New York and across northern New England.
