CONCORD, N.H. (AP) A powerful winter storm is expected to drop one to two feet of snow on parts of the Northeast just a day after it swept through the nation's middle, dumping a record snowfall in Arkansas and ruining holiday travel plans.
The storm, which was blamed for six deaths, hit the Northeast Wednesday night. Within hours, snowfall ranged from a few inches to a dozen in some locations.
The National Weather Service says the Northeast's heaviest accumulations will be in northern Pennsylvania, upstate New York and inland sections of several New England states before the storm ends Friday morning and heads to Canada.
On Wednesday, the storm caused hundreds of flights to be canceled or delayed and scores of motorists got stuck on icy roads. Blizzard warnings were issued in some areas.
