What you need to know about the snow squalls tearing through the Northeast

Cities across the Northeast were hit by snow squalls Wednesday, as forecasters warned of heavy winds and dangerous road conditions. Multiple warnings for the brief bursts of heavy snowfall were issued throughout the region in states including Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Ohio.

As of 5 p.m., the only snow squall warning currently in effect was for parts of New Hampshire, according to a map from the National Weather Service. The warning cited “a line of dangerous snow squalls” moving east through the region at 40 miles per hour at 4:25 p.m., and cautioned that “snow may melt on road surfaces and refreeze after sunset.”

Earlier in the day, snow squalls erupted across a number of northeastern states. Squalls moving through Pennsylvania’s Delaware Valley even brought snowfall heavy enough to obscure Philadelphia’s skyscrapers, according to CBS Philadelphia.
