CORNWALL – City snowplows were out sanding and salting late Tuesday night, preparing for the arrival of a nor’easter moving up the U.S. Atlantic coastline.

A snowfall warning is still in effect for Cornwall and SD&G and Environment Canada updated its anticipated snowfall totals early Tuesday evening.

It says the SD&G area can expect 15-25 centimeters of snow by late Wednesday night and amounts nearing 30 centimeters can be expected around Cornwall.

The wind is expected to pick up as well with gusts to 40 kilometers an hour.

With the nor’easter bearing down, the City of Cornwall exacted its overnight on-street parking ban from 1 a.m. until 7 a.m.

If you’re caught parking on the street, the fine is $25.

The snow is expected to let up on Thursday.

Earlier Tuesday, the storm created icy roads throughout New England, causing numerous traffic accidents.

Parts of New York City, Providence, R.I. and Boston, Ma. set daily rainfall records for Dec. 9, according to The Weather Channel.

Flood watches remain in place for areas from Philadelphia, Pa. to Portland, Maine.
