Snowstorm Sweeps Northeast US but
Snowstorm Sweeps Northeast US but Falls Short of Predictions
 UNITED STATES OF AMERICA , 27-January-2015  10:36:58 AM
A blizzard swept across the northeastern United States, dropping more than a foot (30 cm) of snow but falling short of more dire predictions that sent workers and students home, halted thousands of flights and prompted New York officials to ban cars from roads and shut down subway trains.

As day broke on Tuesday, the leaders of New York City, New York state and New Jersey began lifting travel bans imposed the night before, when forecasters warned of a potentially "historic" blizzard that could dump as much as 3 feet (90 cm) of snow and paralyze the East Coast.

The National Weather Service lifted its blizzard warning for New York City, downgrading it to a winter storm warning, but cautioned that snow could fall off and on until midnight.

"We thought we were going to get something a lot bigger," New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio told CNN. "We're going to quickly get back to normal here in New York City."

On New York's Long Island, Suffolk County Police said a teenager had died late on Monday when he crashed into a lamppost in the street where he was snow-tubing.

The New York Stock Exchange, owned by Intercontinental Exchange Inc, will run as usual, said spokesman Eric Ryan. Nasdaq OMX Group, and BATS Global Markets also expected to stay open for normal operating hours on Tuesday.

In Washington, DC, federal offices and city public schools were scheduled to open two hours late, to allow additional travel time.

High winds and heavy snow were set to persist throughout the day, with another foot forecast to fall in parts of Boston. Wind-driven seas caused flooding along some low-lying roadways in coastal Massachusetts, state police said.
