A new storm is making its way to the Southeast Wednesday, likely dumping rain, sleet and some snow before moving north. The storm has prompted schools to close in Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina. Meanwhile, the Northeast is bracing for another brutal Arctic invasion.

The winter storm is set to hit Wednesday, but ice has already formed on fountains in some southern cities, including Savannah, Georgia, and Charlotte, North Carolina.
