Forecasters say the worst of the latest snowstorm to hit the Northeast is yet to come.

And it could be strong winds, rather than the foot or more of snow expected in some places, that wreaks the most havoc.

Forecasters say that winds could reach 45 mph across a swath of the Northeast from central Pennsylvania to coastal Maine.

Combined with a wet, dense snow falling in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey, that could mean toppled trees and power lines.

Hundreds of flights in the region have already been canceled.
