Play video Details on upcoming rounds of snow for the Northeast.

Motorists in the Northeast are urged to use caution Wednesday morning as a quick-hitting snow falls.

A coating to an inch of snow was predicted in New York City, Boston and Portland through Wednesday morning.

Eastern Pennsylvania, southeastern New York state, northwestern New Jersey and southeastern New England started getting snow as a band set up Tuesday afternoon and evening.

Spotty coatings of snow were in place during the latter part of the Tuesday evening rush hour across some communities. Since roadways are cold, the light snow accumulated quickly.

An Alberta Clipper system that spread from Chicago to Detroit on Tuesday will allow snow to fill in across the eastern Great Lakes and interior Northeast through Tuesday night and Wednesday.

The heaviest snow amounts of 1-2 inches were expected across western portions of Pennsylvania, western and northern parts of New York and northern New York.
