Snow will wind down on Tuesday from northern New England to the Appalachians from a winter storm which has blanketed parts of the northern Plains, Midwest and interior Northeast the past few days.

The Weather Channel has named this Winter Storm Caleb.

Snow is ongoing Tuesday morning from northern New England into the central and southern Appalachians.

Lake-effect snow also continues in the wake of the storm in parts of the Great Lakes region. Snowfall rates of 1 to 3 inches are likely in a lake-effect snow band pounding northwest Indiana and southwest Lower Michigan.

Much of the accumulating snow from this storm has already fallen. But areas from northern New England into the Appalachians could see a few more inches of snow through the first half of Tuesday.

Rain may end as a brief period of snow, sleet or freezing rain along parts of the Interstate 95 corridor Tuesday, particularly from Philadelphia northward. No significant accumulations are expected.
