  • Nearly 5 feet of snow expected in some parts of New York this week

In the West, low-elevation snow will create hazardous travel conditions in western Washington state and OR, the National Weather Service said.

"It's a more wintry feel for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, with a cold week ahead", Castro said.

Wind chill advisories are also in effect for parts of Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire and NY.

- How's this for a white Christmas?

Chicago-area National Weather Service meteorologist Amy Seeley says to expect colder-than-normal temperatures the rest of the week.

Most businesses were already shuttered on Christmas Day in New England.

Chicago shivered through one of its coldest Christmases in a decade as temperatures plummeted to 2 degrees and more than an inch of snow blanketed the city, according to the National Weather Service.

A major cold blast is stretching across the country with 18 states from Montana to NY feeling risky wind chills.

On Tuesday, as many clear off their cars to head back into work after the Christmas holiday, wind will drive the cold temperatures into the teens. But it wasn't enough to cause havoc either on roadway or airport runaways. Most of IN was under winter weather advisory with officials urging motorists to stay put unless they absolutely had to travel. There were no cancellations at the city's other major airport, Midway, and delays were less than 15 minutes on average.

New England was expected to get up to 8 inches (20 centimeters) of snow. Strong winds are predicted for Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island with gusts up to 65 miles per hour (105 kph).

Parts of Colorado, Montana and Wyoming received more than 1 foot of snow.

On Christmas Day, a stationary, lake-effect snow band off Lake Erie dumped almost three feet of snow on Erie, Pa., more than four times the previous Christmas record and 14 inches more than the city's all-time record, which has stood for more than 60 years.

But it meant a heightened warning of avalanches in higher elevations outside of ski areas.
