A storm will continue to bring accumulating snow to parts of the Carolinas, Virginia, southeastern Maryland and southern Delaware into Wednesday evening.
"The snowfall will be parented by a storm responsible for spreading accumulating snow and slippery travel over the Midwest on Monday and the Appalachians on Tuesday," according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski.
Up to 8 inches of snow has fallen from the storm on parts of central North Carolina. Similar amounts are forecast for south-central Virginia with a few inches forecast to extend to the Outer Banks of North Carolina and southeastern Virginia.
A state of emergency was declared in North Carolina on Tuesday ahead of the arrival of the disruptive snow.
In upstate South Carolina and parts of central and northwestern Georgia a coating to an inch or two of snow fell from the storm into Wednesday midday.
In the wake of the snowfall, a freeze-up will bring additional hazards. Similar conditions occurred farther west over the South on Tuesday night.

The risk of patchy black ice will continue to be a problem from the evening to the morning hours, until all of the snow has melted and runoff has ceased through Friday.
A return of mild weather will end the risk of icy patches this weekend.
