The heaviest snow in the Northeast is expected from northern and central Pennsylvania through upstate NY and central and northern New England.

Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories are in effect now as the second winter storm of the week will affect the area by late morning/midday Wednesday and continue into Thursday.

Temperatures will stay around 30 degrees and reach a low of 28 degrees Thursday night.

As Massachusetts deals with freezing rain and iciness Tuesday morning, forecasters are anticipating another winter storm later this week that could bring 4 to 6 inches of snow to communities across the commonwealth.

The National Weather Service is calling for up to 8 inches of snow from a storm starting Thursday and continuing into Friday.

A wintry mix - including snow, sleet and freezing rain - fell Tuesday across central ME, as a midwinter storm created messy travel conditions in much of the state. Lewis said the counties of central and southern West Virginia were in line for four to six inches of accumulation. and the mountain counties and eastern panhandle could receive anywhere from five to ten inches of accumulation.

A storm stretching from Thursday to Friday could drop up to an inch of snow an hour at some points and make travel very hard, forecasters said in a winter storm watch that warns of heavy snow for much of central Pennsylvania. As the night goes on, some data sources show that it all transitions to rain by Thursday morning. Snow amounts up to 2 inches. Cloudy. Highs in the mid 30s. Northeast winds 5 to 10 miles per hour. Lows in the mid 30s. Mild with highs in the upper 50s.

MONDAY: Mostly cloudy skies with a chance of rain showers.
