Winter storm watch issued for large swath of Indiana

Snow falls outside the White House during a spring storm on Wednesday in Washington D.C. The nor'easter impacted much of the East Coast canceling flights schools and work for many residents

Up to 8 inches of snow had fallen in some Philadelphia suburbs by midafternoon, and 13 inches outside Allentown, Pennsylvania. Shutting New York City schools Wednesday meant the district's administration of free SAT tests in high schools was postponed a month.

The middle of next week is expected to reach the mid-40s, possibly even eclipsing 50 degrees. Surprisingly we are talking our first real heavy snow of the 2018 season on the first day of Spring which is somewhat rare in these parts.

Rain will eventually transition to all snow, although it should lighten in intensity into the evening hours as the first storm exits the region. "At times, it's going to be very hard to see if you're out there on the roads", New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Wednesday. "If they're not performing for New Yorkers, they can lose their licenses, and we're fully prepared to do that".

"If you are at work right now, try to leave early if you possibly can", he continued.

Parts of southeast Minnesota, northeast Iowa and far southwest Wisconsin were warned of hard travel conditions.

"Welcome to spring!" New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo joked at a news conference Wednesday. Significant reductions in visibility are possible.

Some 80,000 people in New Jersey lost power, and traffic on the upper level of the George Washington Bridge came to a standstill Wednesday night due to a jackknifed tractor-trailer and fuel spill at about 8 p.m.

Most outages were National Grid customers located in Essex County.

New York's LaGuardia Airport said on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon that airlines had cancelled all remaining flights for the rest of the day.

We will have to watch to see if this becomes our 5th Nor'easter in the past few weeks. New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy declared a State of Emergency, authorizing the State Director of Emergency Management to activate and coordinate response and recovery efforts.

In areas northwest of D.C., rain will fight the sleet and snow line throughout the afternoon.

Daytime highs are expected to hit the 60s by the middle of next week.

"Totals: Heavy snow with 6-12" accumulations possible in central and southeast Minnesota.

Parry reported from Seaside Park, New Jersey.

In Boston, 3 to 7 inches of snow is expected.
