    A winter storm moved through the tri-state Wednesday, bringing a sloppy, slushy mess after what has been a mild and mostly dry winter.

    The wintry weather is expected to linger into Thursday morning, with some portions of the lower Hudson Valley, western Passaic New Jersey and interior southern Connecticut getting more snow, sleet and freezing rain.

    Another 2 to 3 inches are possible in those areas, along with ice. Travel could be difficult, forecasters say.

    New York City saw mostly rain throughout the day, and isn't expected to get snow.

    The snowy conditions have been blamed for an accident that killed one person and injured at least four others in the Hudson Valley town of Newburgh.

    Police say a car spun out and struck another car shortly after 3 p.m. Wednesday on Route 32.

    Periods of rain are expected to continue across the region overnight, possibly with some sleet mixed in, before tapering off Thursday morning. Residents can expect mostly cloudy skies with lingering rain showers as the storm moves out. Temperatures may reach the upper 40s.
