Here’s Where Winter Storm Stella Is Right Now

Updated: Mar 14, 2017 10:59 AM ET

A powerful nor'easter dubbed Winter Storm Stella brought heavy snow to much of the Northeast early Tuesday morning, prompting flight cancellations and school closures and causing officials to warn of "life-threatening" conditions in some areas.

The National Weather Service has issued blizzard warnings, in effect early Tuesday for much of the Northeast, including New England and parts of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

As of 8 a.m. Tuesday, the storm's "increasingly intense cyclone" was located near the eastern coast of Maryland, with indications it was moving toward the coasts of Delaware and New Jersey and into southern New England, according to the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center.

Heavy snow is expected to continue throughout Tuesday.
