The National Weather Service said four to seven inches of snow is expected beginning Tuesday night and continuing into Wednesday evening.

The storm has also caused widespread road closures across some states including Georgia, along with wreaking havoc on the early-morning commute for cities like Boston and New York City.

With winter weather advisories and warnings in place for tomorrow, the MBTA has said it plans to run a normal schedule Wednesday.

Conditions will improve through the afternoon as the wintry weather ends. The snowfall is expected to extend all the way to the coast.

The first is anticipated for this Thursday through Friday, with snow levels possibly lowering to 3,000 feet.

Sub-zero wind chills turned a layer of snow and ice into a travel nightmare Wednesday as a harsh winter storm system stretched from southeast Texas to western MA.

Both Alabama and North Carolina have declared a state of emergency because of the cold weather.

Be prepared for significant reductions in visibility at times.

Even as the snow stops tonight, winter weather will continue on area roadways.

Wednesday's high is only expected to reach 30 degrees with overnight lows in the mid-teens.

After the winter storm dusted through the area late last week and into the weekend, temperatures have remained cold.

Much of the nation is expected to see high temperatures forecast to be as much as 10 to 25 degrees above average, extending from the central/northern Plains into the western US, the National Weather Service said.
