As the storm grows stronger winds are expected to pick up and generate sustained speeds of between 20 and 30 miles per hour, potentially even producing gusts of up to 50 miles per hour on the coast Wednesday night. Cempa said snow was expected to increase in intensity overnight. Heavy snow is expected, the warning says, with total snow accumulations of at least 7 to 10 inches in the warning area, with localized amounts here in the Lehigh Valley most likely around 11 inches, with up to 13 inches or more possible. In areas where a mix or rain occurs, there will be a changeover back to snow before the storm departs, and that will likely accumulate to a plowable snow.

Among those locations reporting 70-mph gusts or higher were Boston's Logan Airport (70 mph), Bayville, New York (78 mph), Cape May, New Jersey (71 mph) and Washington's Dulles Airport (71 mph).

More than 2,400 flights across the region - about 1,900 in the NY metro area alone - were canceled as conditions deteriorated.
