A day after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the east coast, Amtrak says it will provide modified Northeast Regional and Downeaster service, along with trains between Harrisburg and Philadelphia, starting Wednesday.
Amtrak says it will provide Northeast Regional service between Newark, N.J. and points south, including restored Virginia service to Lynchburg, Richmond and Newport News.
Keystone Service trains will also be operated Wednesday from Harrisburg and Philadelphia.
Amtrak's modified Downeaster service will include trains between Boston and Portland, Maine along with some overnight services to and from the Northeast.
Amtrak says it is removing water and making repairs to track, signal and power systems within its tunnels under the Hudson and East River, which means service directly to and from New York Penn Station from either the north or south is not available.
You can check the status of your train on the alerts page of the Amtrak website.
Rain arrives for the second half of the work week. Another fall-like blast of cool weather to follow for the weekend.
Scattered showers are possible tonight as a cold front approaches the area. Otherwise, the best chance for rain will be Thursday afternoon and night where we'll see on and off showers and thunderstorms.
Clouds and showers linger though much of Friday. We may still see a passing shower Saturday. Unseasonably cool air returns this weekend where both days only see high temps in the mid 70s with many of us falling into the 50s at night.
