The sun might make you forget last night's storm, but some commuters won't this morning.

Updated, 4 p.m.: Amtrak has announced that all scheduled Northeast Corridor service will be restored Friday following cancellations caused by Wednesday's nor'easter along the East Coast. The only change, the agency said, is that passengers traveling between New York Penn Station and Boston on the Acela 2190 will instead be accomodated on Train 190 "at close to the same time." 

Original story, 9:45 a.m.: With today’s sun and high near the mid-40s, Wednesday's thunder snow and nor’easter may seem a distant memory for many New Yorkers, but not for others looking to commute into the city Thursday morning.

Here's what's going on as of 9:30 a.m.

MTA buses and subways

While MTA subways are not experiencing any weather-related issues this morning, signal problems at 57th Street are causing delays on northbound F trains, while southbound F trains are also delayed due to a signal problem at Avenue U.

Signal problems at Gun Hill Road are also causing delays on southbound 2 trains, and straphangers may experience residual delays on L trains following an NYPD investigation at 8th Avenue.

Bus riders should expect delays across all five boroughs due to inclement weather conditions.

LIRR & Metro-North

The Long Island Rail Road is operating on its normal schedules, but Metro-North is running on a reduced schedule with the new Canaan and Danbury Branches suspended until further notice.

Commuters should expect “extremely crowded conditions”and delays due to the residual effects of the storm,” Metro-North said.

NJ Transit

New Jersey Transit customers may experience delays on eastbound Northeast Corridor trains due to signal problems, and trains are skipping Hamilton, Princeton Junction and Jersey Avenue stations because of an overhead wire issue. Riders can take a westbound train to Trenton for eastbound service.

Morris and Essex, Gladstone and Montclair-Boonton Line service remains suspended because of overhead wire problems.

Raritan Valley Line trains are running as normal between Raritan and Newark Penn Station, but service between High Bridge and Raritan is still suspended because of downed trees across the tracks.

River Line light rail may see up to 15-minute delays in both directions.

Amtrak

Amtrak service between Boston and New York City will remain suspended “until at least 10 a.m.” Thursday due to inclement weather, the agency said on its website, adding that “service will be restored pending improved conditions.” 

Both Amtrak’s Keystone Service (between New York, Philadelphia and Harrisburg) and Empire Service (between New York and Albany-Rensselaer) are running on modified schedules today. For complete schedule changes and cancellations, click here.
