Snow of varying intensity will continue today over portions of New England and the Hudson Valley with areas of showers and fog farther south and west.

Cold air will hold its ground over central New England and much of the central and northern Hudson Valley of New York.

"A change to a wintry mix or rain will only advance so far as a result," Expert Senior Meteorologist Dave Dombek said.

Snow will wind down from west to east across the region today, but there will still be additional snow over portions of central and northern New England and northern upstate New York with some enhancement possible from the Atlantic Ocean.


This map shows actual storm snowfall (in inches) as reported by the National Weather Service as of 10:00 a.m. EST, Mar. 1, 2012.

Over an inch of rain fell Wednesday farther south across parts of the mid-Atlantic contributing to travel problems as well.

Incidents of flash and urban flooding occurred along and south of the Mason-Dixon Line with some areas being hit by heavy, gusty thunderstorms.

Enough cold air could ooze back in to change rain over to snow along the southern coast of New England for a time Thursday.
