Snow, extreme cold wallop Northeast, more to come

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (AP) - A winter storm that blanketed much of the eastern US with snow and bone-chilling temperatures is being blamed for at least 16 deaths.

Forecasters expect a weekend warm-up in some areas before temperatures plunge again, threatening to bring record lows and wind chills that could reach minus-50 or colder.

The cold temperatures kept the snow powder and easy to plow as residents in the hard-hit corridor between Philadelphia and Boston dug out.

The heaviest snow fell north of Boston in Boxford, which received nearly 2 feet. Nearly 18 inches fell in Boston and in western New York near Rochester. Lakewood, N.J., got 10 inches, and New York's Central Park 6. Philadelphia got more than 6 inches.
