PHILADELPHIA — Winter-weary residents got out their boots and shovels yet again as another storm moved up the East Coast on Wednesday.

The storm brought a mix of rain and snow to areas from Tennessee into New England. The snow was expected to get heavier by afternoon and could complicate the evening rush hour, particularly in New England.

Schools closed or delayed starts around the region, including in parts of Tennessee, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C.

In New Jersey, motorists faced slick conditions as light snow fell over most of the state. Heavy snow was expected over most of the state Wednesday night.

New Jersey and the Philadelphia area could get 4 to 8 inches before the storm moves out early Thursday. Kentucky had half a foot by Wednesday morning as the snow moved across the central part of the state and headed east.

In New York, the lower Hudson Valley again expected to see the most snow from the storm.

Counties closest to the New York City metro area — Dutchess, Orange and Putnam — could get anywhere from 3 to 7 inches between late afternoon Wednesday and early Thursday morning.

The storm will likely bring heavy snow to much of southern New England late Wednesday and early Thursday morning.
