  • Schools closed, winter storm warning in effect for west central area

Five to 7 inches fell near Gilbertsville, Pennsylvania, at rates of almost 2 inches per hour in the late morning, the National Weather Service reported. Significant reductions in visibility are expected.

The storm could cause minor to moderate coastal flooding in the northern mid-Atlantic and Northeast, and winds and snow could bring down more power lines, adding to the thousands of outages that remain in the region from last weekend.

Philadelphia, New York and Boston could see fair amounts of snow, but areas inland could receive even more.

Nonessential state workers are being dismissed in staggered phases beginning at noon to reduce the risk for traffic problems as commuters head home from Hartford.

Martin had already arranged to stay in Philadelphia overnight, preferring not to take a chance with the expected treacherous road conditions.

Nonessential second-shift state employees are being told not to report to work Wednesday evening.

More than 50 million people from Maryland to ME were under winter storm warnings and watches, just days after last weekend's deadly "bomb cyclone".

Due to the storm, about 2,300 flights had been grounded Wednesday and another 200 Thursday.

More than a foot of snow is expected for some interior areas, the weather service said.

Depending on the storm's track, communities along the Interstate 95 corridor could see heavy rain, heavy snow or a mix of both.

The Amtrak passenger train service canceled some Wednesday trains between Washington and Boston, as well as some services in Pennsylvania and other parts of the Northeast.

This comes just days after another storm knocked out power to millions, some of whom are still waiting to have their service restored.

Another nor'easter is threatening communities up and down the East Coast, closing schools and city offices and causing outage concerns for utility customers still trying to bounce back from last week's storm.

Between 8 and 12 inches (20 and 30 cm) of wet, heavy snow, some of it accompanied by thunder and lightning, were forecast for New York City and the surrounding suburbs in New Jersey and CT through to Thursday morning.

While the winds will not be as strong as they were during last week's "bomb cyclone" storm, the snow this time will be heavier and fall on more populated areas.

The storm will spread with varying degrees of intensity across the Northeast, from western Pennsylvania up into New England, and officials took precautions. Tree branches could fall due to wind gusts up to 45 to 50 miles per hour this afternoon and evening.
