Hundreds of flights at Logan International Airport were canceled, speed limits were reduced on the Massachusetts Turnpike, and schools across the state were shuttered, as the first picturesque snowflakes fell.

Winter storm warnings are in effect for Boston and NY.

De Blasio tweeted Wednesday night that NY schools would close.

There were extreme snowfall rates at times with the range between 1 and 4 inches per hour. Williamsport, PA broke a snowfall record that stood for more than 120 years.

Heavy snow will continue through most of the morning before tapering off by noon, Storm Team 4 says.

"It's very tough to make decisions based on forecast information but we really do work with our partners at the weather service to make the best decisions we can based on the information provided to us", Phillips said explaining the city's actions. Our highways are open, and will remain open, we anticipate.

One that touched down east of downtown New Orleans was rated at least an EF2, considered a significant tornado with winds between 111 and 135 miles per hour, CNN affiliate WDSU-TV reported. Massachusetts' emergency management bunker in Framingham is online, with Governor Charlie Baker scheduled to provide an update this hour.

With whiteout conditions and snowy, icy roads, officials urged residents not to drive. The intensity of the snow should make roads hard to transverse and could lead to school delays and cancellations. It is going to be pretty dicey for awhile.

Providence will be under a winter storm warning until 8 p.m. and could receive between 12 and 18 inches by tonight. "People will have to park on the even side of the street".

In New York City, a group of women in pajamas waited on the sidewalk in the freezing cold to attend a taping of ABC's "The Chew" show, where the day had been proclaimed "Pajama Day".

"If you need to go out, please, don't use your vehicle", de Blasio said on NY1 television.

"We're expecting a big storm in the city". Some people are a huge fan of it, a lot of people disagree with it. You know I mean it's a lot easier to refer to a hurricane by its name and remember it by its name.

Weather.com reported winter storm warnings stretched along the I-95 corridor from Maryland to Maine with snow and high winds making for a treacherous morning commute in places like Philadelphia and New York City, where drivers are being encouraged to stay off the roads. Temperatures are forecast to pick up slightly Friday, with highs hitting the high 30s, before rising to the low- to mid-40s over the weekend.
