PHOTOS, VIDEO: Snow, Wind and Frigid Air Blast the Northeast

Frigid winds blasted across the Northeast this weekend, triggering heavy lake-effect snow downwind of the Great Lakes and in the Appalachians.

"The coldest air mass of the season moved into the Northeast and mid-Atlantic this weekend," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dave Samuhel said. "The wind took the cold air across the Great Lakes, which are still relatively mild, resulting in widespread lake-effect snow."

Up to two feet of snow buried Crawford County, Pa., as of late Sunday. The heavy lake-effect snow created slick and dangerous travel conditions downwind of the Great Lakes, including along I-90, or the New York State Thruway, according to the New York Department of Transportation.

Flurries made it as far south as Ocean City, Md.

High winds whipping at 40-55 mph Sunday morning made AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures even lower than actual temperatures across the Northeast and mid-Atlantic.

New York City recorded its first subfreezing high in November since 1989 as the temperature only rose to 30 degrees Fahrenheit on Sunday.

Montpelier, Vt., topped out at a high of 16 F on Sunday, setting a new record for the lowest maximum temperature for Nov. 24. The old record was 20 F set back in 2000.

David McFeaters took a picture of this snowy scene in Oil City, Venango County, Pa., where more than a foot of lake-effect snow fell. Roads were shut down with accidents occurring on slick roadways on Sunday, Nov. 24, 2013.
