Areas that already got snow this week are bracing for more

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Another winter storm is dumping heavy snow on parts of the Midwest. The East Coast, meanwhile, is bracing for a treacherous commute tomorrow morning, with the next front expected to arrive there overnight.

The snow has been piling up today in parts of Missouri and Kansas. Northern Missouri could get eight inches or more, while as much as a foot of snow is expected in the Kansas state capital of Topeka. Classes were canceled today throughout Kansas.

Ohio could get another six to ten inches of snow overnight. But the southeastern part of the state, which got the brunt of a snowstorm yesterday, could escape the worst this time -- getting the precipitation in the form of freezing rain and sleet.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for the New York City area that starts overnight and continues until 6 p.m. tomorrow. The city is expected to get four to eight inches of snow, plus about a tenth of an inch of ice.

New Jersey is already digging out from under nine inches of snow. And a winter storm warning is in effect for New Jersey's northern counties until tomorrow morning.
