Relentless winter weather continued to grip much of the nation on Thursday, and there have been no signs of it letting go anytime soon.
Syracuse, N.Y. received 11.9 inches of new snow Wednesday, making this month the second snowiest December on record in the region.
In Minnesota, residents continue to try to dig out from last weekend's massive snowfall. The frozen precipitation has threatened to delay the Vikings' Monday night football game since the roof of the Minneapolis Metrodome, which collapsed under 17 inches of snow, may not be repaired in time.
Also, the system that brought piles of snow to the upper Midwest has caused havoc in the Southeast with ice and sleet. At least five people were killed in accidents caused by icy conditions.
Meanwhile, parts of Kentucky and Tennessee may receive ice accumulations of up to half an inch.
"It's going to be a mixed bag" of snow, sleet, and freezing rain, National Weather Service meteorologist Ted Funk said told CNN.
"That's going to provide some very hazardous driving conditions overnight and into Thursday morning," he warned.
