(NEW YORK) — Another blast of snow and ice impacted weekend plans from the Midwest to the Northeast on Sunday.

A half foot of snow was reported from central Missouri to the central Ohio Valley through Sunday morning. Up to 9 inches of snow fell in central Illinois and snowfall accumulations hit 8 inches in northern Indiana.

The southern side of this latest winter storm brought freezing rain to the mid-Atlantic region Sunday morning. The freezing rain eventually moved farther north, reaching central Pennsylvania to New Jersey by Sunday afternoon.

More than a quarter inch of ice accumulated in parts of Maryland, with a glaze to two-10ths of an inch of ice reported throughout much of the mid-Atlantic, icing over roads and causing numerous accidents throughout the day.

On Sunday evening, the heaviest of the precipitation was focused over the Northeast with snow falling from New York City north to Boston, and freezing rain falling for areas south of Interstate 80.

The highest snowfall totals in the Northeast stretch from northwestern Pennsylvania and along the New York state line into southern New England. More than 6 inches of snow was expected in this region, with isolated totals up to 8 inches possible.

The heaviest of the snow fell just south of Boston, however several inches of snow were expected there as well. With 5.6 inches of snow, this winter would tie the record for the city’s all-time snowiest season, and it looks like they will come up just short of that with this event.

The snow and freezing rain ended early Monday morning, right before the busy morning commute. However, some slick spots on area roadways are still possible.

Another winter storm will be taking aim on millions of Americans beginning Monday night and hitting many of the same locations that received snow over the weekend.

However, the next storm will track north and bring more rain than snow to many cities. Some heavy rain is possible as well prompting flooding concerns from the Tennessee Valley to New England given the current widespread snow cover throughout the country.
