A powerful coastal storm that lashed New England Tuesday only grazed the Jersey Shore but dropped moderate snow accumulations in some areas, contributed to a messy commute for some, and sparked a debate whether school openings should have been delayed.

The National Weather Service’s forecast issued on Monday mostly came to fruition as snow began falling in coastal areas late Monday night and lasted through Tuesday morning.

As forecasted, an intense snow band moved onshore shortly after sunrise and contributed significantly to the overall accumulation totals.

While accumulations were mainly minor, snow fell at the worst possible time for early morning commuters.
