Meanwhile, parts of the Dakotas remain under blizzard and winter storm warnings.

The National Weather Service has transitioned the region to a Winter Storm Warning in effect from 7 p.m. this evening to 3 a.m. Thursday.

On Wednesday as of 1:30 a.m., Eversource was reporting more than 125,000 outages across the state.

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

The weather service expects travel to be "very hard to almost impossible" due during the evening commuting hours.

According to the Dateline statement, classes will resume on Friday.

A few inches of additional snowfall may accumulate in parts of MA, southern New Hampshire, Vermont and northern NY.

A winter storm watch is in effect across MA as another system of heavy precipitation and strong wind move in.

The governors of New Jersey and Pennsylvania declared states of emergency, which gives them access to support from the USA government if needed.

Light rain and light snow will develop late this afternoon and especially this evening, then transition to all snow tonight and continue Wednesday.

An additional inch or two of accumulation is possible with the flurries and snow showers Tuesday afternoon and evening. Winds will be an issue in open areas, with gusts up to 40 miles per hour, and sustained winds at 20-30 miles per hour.

For the second time in less than a week, a storm rolled into the Northeast with wet, heavy snow Wednesday, grounding flights, closing schools and bringing another round of power outages to a corner of the country still recovering from the previous blast of winter. In all, total accumulations of four to six inches of snow is expected however eight or more inches of snow could fall in some localized areas, the National Weather Service said.

A nor'easter expected to hit New Jersey, according to meteorologists, will bring heavy rain for most of the state but some areas may be covered in snow.

There is still a chance the storm will track closer to the coast, which could mean more rain for NY and coastal areas, cutting down on snow amounts, Ciemnecki said. Because the storm will strengthen further north, Pereira said Washington will likely be spared of snow while Philadelphia could get an inch or so.

A middle school teacher in southern New Jersey has been struck by lightning during a snowstorm sweeping up the East Coast. This storm comes less than a week after a nor'easter left 150,000 Rhode Island electric customers in the dark.

While not all schools had yet announced their closures, Philadelphia said all public and Parochial schools would be closed due Wednesday to inclement weather, KYW-TV reported. Across the region, power lines and tree branches sagged precariously under the weight of the wet show.
