Major Snowstorm Clobbers DC, Philly, NYC and Boston

 As the storm reached the coast, it began to strengthen and set the stage for heavy, wind-driven snow along a large part of the I-95
corridor in the Northeast.
 
Numerous daily snowfall records were broken on Tuesday as a result of this storm from Maryland to New York and up to 15 inches fell in parts of New Jersey.
 

In Philadelphia, 13.5 inches fell which broke the previous record for the date of 3.4 inches from 1917.

In New York City, 11 inches was measured at Central Park, breaking the record for the date of 6 inches from 2001.
 

Boston was spared the heaviest snow, but areas just to their south received a foot of snow.

On Tuesday, more than 7,000 flights had been delayed or canceled due to the winter storm across the U.S., according to FlightStats, with most of those in the Northeast.

Because every major hub in the Northeast was impacted by this storm, air travel problems will carry over into Wednesday. More than 1,500 flights were already canceled as of early on Wednesday morning according to FlightStats.
