  • Christmas Brings Snow, Strong Winds to New England

A white Christmas for much of the Northeast and Midwest has given way to bitter cold until the New Year. The National Weather Service's office in Cleveland said the storm brought 34 inches of snow to Erie on Christmas Day, which is a new all-time daily snowfall record for the city.

This morning, Erie picked up an additional 19 inches of new snow, bringing the total there to more than four feet - 53 inches - within 30 hours. The previous record for December 25 was 8.1 inches, set in 2002, and the previous single-day snowfall record was 20 inches, set on November 22, 1956.

State police and the state Department of Transportation are urging people to avoid travel, citing poor visibility and deteriorating conditions.

In North Granby, 4.8 inches of snow was reported.

Temperatures hovered around zero degrees in Chicago on Tuesday.
