WEATHER NEWS: Winter storm live updates: Arctic blast snarls U.S. holiday travel


Strong southerly winds ahead of the storm over the Great Lakes is funneling ocean water inland in portions of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast coast. This is piling water against south-, southeast- and east-facing coastlines. Coastal flood warnings line much of the Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Maine coastline for water levels up to about 2 feet above normally dry land.

In New York, warnings are in effect for the Bronx, Northwest Suffolk, Northern Queens and Northern Nassau counties. The National Weather Service warns the flooding may result in “numerous road closures and cause widespread flooding of low lying property including parking lots, parks, lawns and homes/businesses with basements near the waterfront.”
