Some New England and New Jersey communities are still feeling the effects of that storm.

On the other hand, if the storm wiggles just 30 miles east, snow totals could overperform as colder air enacts a more thorough changeover from rain to snow/sleet.

Capt. Todd Malland of the Manchester Township police department says the woman was holding an umbrella while on bus duty outside the Manchester Middle School around 2:30 p.m. when the strike occurred.

The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning into Thursday morning for the Philadelphia area. This includes Albany, Hartford, Portland and the Boston metro area.

During these situations, snow also starts forming very quickly, which can lead to lots of accumulation.

"We saw that last week", said Dombek.

The area of low pressure will track off the New England coast toward eastern Maine. More than 90,000 homes and businesses remained without power Wednesday, mostly in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and NY.

Winter Storm Riley's heaviest snow was in upstate NY, especially west of Albany and in the Catskills.

The heaviest additional accumulations of a foot of snow or more are most likely in parts of central and northern Maine.

Overdoses in PA emergency rooms nearly doubled, according to CDC report
The latest data could underestimate the overdoses, because many people who overdose never end up in the emergency room. Schuchat further admits that "we think that the number of people addicted to opioids is relatively stable".

The expected snowfall for the Philadelphia region for Wednesday's storm as of Tuesday afternoon.

With snow starting early in the northern and western parts of the region, residents there could see as much as 8-15 inches of snow.

New York City should see at least a foot of snow by the time the storm winds down later Thursday, the National Weather Service said.

Heavy, wet snow and gusting winds could take down trees already weakened from last week's storm and snap power lines, adding to stress for customers who've gone days without power.

The morning commute went smoothly in most areas, as the storm had not yet kicked into high gear. The driver reportedly escaped without injury.

"At this point, people are pretty done with winter", she said. Officials have not yet released their identity.

St. Lawrence County will see less snow, from 3 to 6 inches, most of which will fall Wednesday evening and overnight into Thursday.

This Afternoon: Snow intensity increasing and becoming heavy at times by 1:00 PM in Southwestern CT and into the Hartford/Middletown areas by 4:00 PM. Winds will remain brisk Wednesday night and shift to the northwest behind the departing storm.
