BUFFALO - A nor'easter is bringing a taste of winter to communities that were basking in record warmth a month ago.

The storm churned up the Northeast on Monday packing high winds, soaking rain and springtime snow.

Some schools are closed and there are fears of widespread power outages. Utilities already report about 50,000 customers without power in Pennsylvania and central and western New York.

The earliest hits were on higher ground, where snow-laden tree limbs pulled down power lines and commuters navigated slushy roads to work and school.

The storm will continue into Tuesday morning. Up to 16 inches of snow are possible in higher elevations south of Buffalo. The lakeside city is expecting 5 to 9 inches.

Higher elevations of central and western Pennsylvania could get up to 12 inches.
