Forecasters said the snow is expected to taper through the day, but not before dropping 3 to 6 more inches. The highest totals will be in the Adirondack Mountains.

High winds will stay in place through the night, long after the snow stops.

Nantucket, Massachusetts, will likely see wind gusts of 43 mph, while Islip, on New York’s Long Island, will see 39 mph gusts.

An “abnormally chilly air-mass” in the east will remain through the middle of the week, according to the National Weather Service.

A handful of daily record cold high and low temperatures are forecast in parts of the Midwest, Great Lakes, and Northeast today,” the weather service said.

About 40 million people were under frost and freeze alerts Tuesday morning stretching from the central Plains to the mid-Atlantic.

Temperatures 15 to 25 degrees below average will make highs Tuesday and Wednesday feel more like March than April.

The region will get a chance to thaw out later in the week when a warmup is expected.

  1. Not good for crops and fruit trees. I just noticed the young rats got through my cage defenses and gnawed on one of my young pear trees. Little bastards. Tree is leafing and blossoming now but the rat bastard got one side of trunk pretty bad. Some fruit trees will shake it off, if it’s not 360° girding. However, diseases can get in there, and parasites. That was a good young tree. Need to set my traps over there tonight, and feed the rats to my yard owls. Surprised they didn’t kill the rats. Must mean there are a big nest over there or something?
