(NEW YORK) — Wet, heavy snow is falling across the East Coast Wednesday morning, the second storm this week for residents in the region.

Snow is covering roadways ahead of the morning commute, creating slick driving conditions.

By 4:30 a.m., the snow changed to sleet in New York City, with additional ice and sleet accumulation expected Wednesday morning due to low temperatures.

A winter storm warning was issued for Philadelphia, with the city experiencing rain and sleet. Rain fell across Washington, D.C., and Baltimore.

The storm could bring over a foot of snow to Albany, N.Y., and Hartford, Conn. Boston could also get hit hard, possibly as much as 10 inches. The storm should pull out of the Northeast late Wednesday afternoon.

Some states declared states of emergency ahead of the storm, including New Jersey and Mississippi.

The snow was falling across the Midwest Tuesday, prompting many schools and businesses to close. Almost 13 inches fell in Topeka, Kan., making it the third-biggest snowstorm in the city’s history.

The Northeast was hit by a separate snowstorm two days ago.

As if all the snow wasn’t enough, an additional storm system is brewing — and could potentially dump more slushy snow across the country next week. At this point, weather models for the approaching storm system vary.
