Evening travelers face major challenges as a nor'easter continues to dump a sloshy mix of rain and snow throughout the NY metro area.

Transportation departments in Philadelphia and Boston loaded up salt trucks and treated roads Tuesday, and some airlines waived ticket change fees for airports in the storm's projected path, such as Newark, Philadelphia, Boston and New York's JFK.

"With an impending snowstorm in the [metro New York] region and students attempting to return to campus from winter break, administrators felt it prudent to cancel classes for the safety of the student body", the Dateline statement read.

It mentions Kent County as one of the areas near the snow-rain line where it's hard to predict snowfall. Snowfall may turn to wintry rain in some areas, depending on how much of the storm stays out at sea. Check Closings for the latest updates.

The worst of the snow is expected to hit between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m.

More power outages are expected.

The heaviest snow will fall late Wednesday into Thursday morning, with near-blizzard conditions possible.

Northeast winds on Wednesday will become northwest on Wednesday night. Heavy snow is expected, the warning says, with total snow accumulations of at least 7 to 10 inches in the warning area, with localized amounts here in the Lehigh Valley most likely around 11 inches, with up to 13 inches or more possible.

Although New York City was originally expecting much higher snowfall totals, those predictions have now been reduced as of the time of publication. The Wednesday morning commute could get a bit messy, but overall travel conditions should be OK.

But the anticipated six to eight inches of snow didn't stop out-of-towners from enjoying their visit to the city of Brotherly Love.

A Winter Storm Watch remains in effect from Wednesday afternoon through Thursday evening.

Boston and New York City only saw a trace of snow from Riley while Philadelphia picked up 1.5 inches.

The forecast models have disagreements with the track and timing of the system. Some areas may see a little more than 15 inches locally. The state may also see three to six inches below Route 195.

The snow snapped tree limbs and downed power lines across much of central NY, causing travel emergencies and travel bans in Oneida and Madison counties.

In York County, officials were keeping a close eye on coastal areas that were battered for four days during the powerful strong nor'easter last weekend.

AccuWeather.com senior meteorologist Bob Larson said Orange County fell directly in the path of the storm, which the weather service named Winter Storm Quinn.
