Snow fell from Minnesota to Maryland Wednesday into Thursday, with accumulations up to six inches. Why call it a "sneaky" snowstorm?

"It's not snow that comes from a big storm," AccuWeather meteorologist Henry Margusity said. "It was just a little area of snow that just drifted on through. The accumulation just kind of sneaks in there."

Highest snow totals:
6 inches at Mill Creek, W.Va.
5 inches at Centralia, W.Va.
3 inches at Gassaway, W.Va.
