The Blizzard of 2017 has wrapped up, blanketing a large part of the eastern US with fairly deep snow. As a matter of fact, there is snow cover reported in every state in the United States except for Florida.
The storm responsible for the significant snow and blizzard conditions in places like Virginia Beach and Cape Cod was the second punch in a 2-punch system that brought wintry precipitation and cold air to the east coast over the last few days.
As this map shows, the heaviest snow fell over central and northern North Carolina, southern Virginia, southeastern Maryland, portions of the Jersey Shore, eastern Long Island, and extreme southeastern New England south of Boston.
While heavy snow fell in many areas, locations away from the coast such as northeastern Pennsylvania, upstate New York (outside of Lake Effect snow areas), and northern Vermont and New Hampshire saw only a dusting to an inch.
That light snowfall is in deep contrast to the heavy snow reported in places like 13.5″ in Ocean View, DE, 12″ in Warren, NC, 9.8″ in Old Bethpage, NY, and 17″ in Plymouth, MA.
