BOSTON (AP) A widespread storm that brought heavy snowfall across the Northeast in recent days is winding down.

The National Weather Service says the long-lasting storm is slowly moving out of the region Tuesday afternoon and should be in parts of Canada by nighttime.

The storm arrived in parts of the region on Sunday. It dumped more than two feet in parts of upstate New York, western Massachusetts and Vermont, but less than six inches along the coast on Tuesday.

In New Jersey, the storm has knocked out power to tens of thousands of residents.

The weather service says the rest of the work week is expected to be colder and drier, though parts of New England might see light rain or even snow Friday night.
