At least one person died from the storm.
Snow from the storm is expected to be heaviest through the afternoon and evening hours on Wednesday, according to Dean.

It was less than a week ago that a major storm brought damaging winds and flooding rain to much of the northeastern part of the United States.

The storm packed gusts of 30 to 50 miles per hour - a far cry from the 90-mph gusts recorded during the weekend storm - but still damaging. Some 100,000 homes and businesses in the region remained without power on Wednesday.
The dense snow and strong winds downed trees and power lines on Wednesday, knocking power out in more than a million homes and homes and businesses across the Northeast, utility companies said. Warmer temperatures near the ground didn't help, either, said Faye Morrone, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Upton, New York.
In Pennsylvania, Gov. Tom Wolf announced a state of emergency for several counties.
Philadelphia could get about 8 to 12 inches, according to snowfall estimates from the National Weather Service, with especially heavy snowfall possible through 7 p.m. City schools were closed Wednesday.
"Already observing an over 3-foot storm surge at Boston; obvious concern with onshore wind gusts upon a weakened, vulnerable shoreline", it tweeted.
The snowstorm also brought a rare phenomenon in some parts of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and NY, the weather service said.
"Thundersnow", as the phenomenon is known, is snow paired with lightning and resulting thunder.
About half of all scheduled flights were cancelled at the three major airports serving New York City, according to the tracking service FlightAware.
