Calm after the storm in States as Sandy heads north to Canada
THE damage caused by superstorm Sandy at its peak was replaced by calmer conditions across the eastern seaboard of the US yesterday, with warnings of freezing conditions as the storm continued to peter away.
The US National Weather Service said it was cloudy and chilly with showers across much of the coast, as the remnants of Sandy continued to shift northwards into Canada.
However, heavy rain and snowfall was expected in some areas, as the unusually cold, wintry conditions caused by the storm continued to be felt.
Dave Hamrick, a meteorologist with the NWS, said: “Widespread cloudiness, showers, and breezy conditions can be expected from the Great Lakes to New England through Friday as the remnant low from Sandy lifts slowly northward into Canada.
“Frost advisories and freeze warnings have been issued for parts of the eastern US. An upper-level trough over eastern Canada and the northeast US is adding to the instability.”
