What will the winter storm bring? Here's the latest forecast

The storm moved slightly more slowly than expected, said Meteorologist Nick Petro, adding that he expects hazardous road conditions tonight and possibly for the next few mornings.

Temperatures will be in the upper teens in northern regions and in the low to mid 20s for Horry County with biting wind chill values.

Classes were canceled at a number of universities Wednesday in the South, including Georgia Tech, the University of Georgia, the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Duke University and North Carolina State University.

As of Wednesday morning, a winter weather advisory for Malboro County and Robeson County, North Carolina was updated to a winter storm warning.

A winter storm was dumping snow Wednesday morning from the Florida Panhandle to ME as it left bone-chilling and icy conditions in the states behind it, snarled traffic across parts of the South and East, and forced thousands of airline customers to scramble.

"The snow is pretty, but don't be fooled", Cooper said. Atlanta could get about 1 to 2 inches.

Chris says the forecasting models are showing that the snow is expected to fall between midnight and 7 a.m. Wednesday.

The snow may become heavy from late morning into the afternoon.

The Mid-Atlantic and Northeast is expected to see light snow.

Travel will be very hard to impossible, according to the weather service. "Snowfall rates will be sufficient enough to stick to the roads, even some pre-treated roadways". Snow fell in a wide band that stretched from southeastern Texas all the way to western MA.

A major concern Wednesday is that the storm system is moving in during the morning commute hours across Southern cities, which could cause hard driving conditions, said CNN meteorologist Pedram Javaheri.

Little to no icing is expected with the storm, but Pfaff warned some black ice is possible Wednesday night into Thursday morning, especially in warning and advisory areas.

Forecasters said chilly air would hang around from the South to the Northeast, leaving icy roads and hazardous conditions through Thursday.

Cooper declared a statewide emergency Tuesday to allow him to deploy resources ahead of trouble.
