Heavy snow is falling across the Northeast on Wednesday as another nor'easter slammed into the region in less than a week, creating travel headaches as thousands of flights have been canceled and several governors have declared a state of emergency.

The nor’easter dumped snow at a rate of 2 or 3 inches an hour and knocked out electricity to hundreds of thousands of customers while producing a rare weather phenomenon known as “thundersnow” as it made its way up the coast. 

The storm was expected to drop more than a foot of snow in interior locations throughout the day, especially in locations from northern New Jersey, the lower Hudson River Valley and into northern Connecticut and western Massachusetts, according to Fox News Senior Meteorologist Janice Dean.

"This is a tough forecast as there is a sharp gradient of snowfall accumulation to the north and west where over a foot is expected," Dean said.
