Heavy snow to continue into tomorrow in parts of the Northeast

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — One man shoveling the sidewalk outside the legislative building in Concord, N.H., says he expects to be at it all day, just trying to keep up with the snow that's falling.

There's already a foot of snow on the ground in some locations, after the storm pushed its way through the upper Ohio Valley and into the Northeast.

The East Coast's largest cities -- New York, Philadelphia and Boston -- are seeing mostly high winds and rain.

Forecasters say the heaviest snowfall will be in northern Pennsylvania, upstate New York and inland sections of several New England states before the storm heads to Canada tomorrow morning.

Thousands of travelers are trying to make it home today, after the storm stranded them at airports or at relatives' homes.

Some inbound flights were delayed today in Philadelphia and New York, but the wet and windy weather isn't leading to delays elsewhere.
