The latest storm lost some punch as it rolled into New England on Thursday.

The snow isn't expected to stick to roadways, meaning the Thursday commute will be wet - but it probably won't be too snowy, Dunten said.

"That's why it took so long for the snow to try to get in here yesterday", Fitzgibbon said Thursday morning.

"A light glaze of ice is possible Friday night with freezing drizzle", the weather service predicted. Snow had trouble sticking to the ground during the day, but accumulations started to rise after nightfall.

"I want warm! I'm done with the cold", said Yana Damoiseau, a pedestrian in New York City.

The area's airports are lumbering back into service.

Winter Storm Toby is the fourth nor'easter in three weeks to batter the United States east coast following previous storms on March 2, 7 and March 13 which killed at least nine people, and left more than 2 million homes and businesses without power. "1-3" more in metro DC before it winds down later today.

Since the winds are from the southeast, Mack expects the east and northeast areas of the city will require extra attention. Snow will turn heavy with the secondary low cruising up the coast early Wednesday morning. But it was downgraded Wednesday and exited Thursday morning with just a few flurries.

Several schools districts across the tri-state began posting closures Tuesday afternoon ahead of the storm's arrival. But his office hasn't announced yet if that order has been lifted. But city schools reopened Thursday, even as a few dozen schools across the area made a decision to declare another snow day.

Spring weather is going to have to wait.

But, she added, the drastic changes in forecast within 24 hours of the storm are "something we haven't seen in a while". NY had at least 5 inches ahead of the evening commute and braced for a total of 6 to 12.

In Philadelphia, where wind-whipped snow fell on Tuesday, restaurant server Katy Halbeisen called the early-spring storm "pretty lame".

This had created "a tremendous temperature contrast" causing them to become "bomb cyclones".

"It's time to move on to another season", said Pancho Ortega, who was clearing the sidewalk outside his soon-to-open restaurant in Philadelphia.

Over 4,000 flights have been canceled, according to FlightAware. Most locations will continue as a mix as the system continues to track to the northeast.

Rates of up to 5 inches per hour were reported, unusual for the Island, meteorologists said.

Patience wore thin as the fourth major storm in three weeks pounded the region. "We want to encourage all New Yorkers right now, if you don't need to be out this evening, don't go out".

Around 28,000 electricity customers were already without power in Virginia and West Virginia.

Snowfall was reported in Cincinnati, Louisville and through most of West Virginia, Maryland and Virginia by sunrise Wednesday.
