NEW YORK (AP) — A widespread winter storm has dumped snow over the Northeast and parts of Ohio just days after the regions were hit by another storm moving from the nation’s midsection.

The National Weather Service expects up to a foot of snow in parts of southern New England. The heaviest snowfall could be in Boston and Providence, R.I.

The weather service says in Ohio, Dayton, Columbus and Cincinnati saw about 2 to 5 inches of snow Saturday.

Drivers in the Northeast are being warned to be cautious. Officials lowered the speed limit on much of the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

The earlier storm dumped more than a foot of snow in some places and has been blamed for at least 16 deaths. It spawned more than a dozen tornadoes in Alabama.
