Officials in North Carolina are warning people across the South to get off the roads and stay home as Mother Nature added a new misery to the deadly storm that has paralyzed the region - sheets of treacherous ice.
Two and a half inches of snow followed by sleet and freezing rain brought chaos once again to the winter-weary South - killing 13 people and knocking out power to more than a half a million homes Wednesday.

On major roads and highways Wednesday evening, it seemed like a bad bout of dj vu as hundreds of stranded drivers were forced to abandon their cars and walk to shelter after they were caught in the brunt of the storm.

This time the disaster scenes played out in North Carolina. Residents of Atlanta, which was battered just two weeks ago, took no chances and stayed off the roads - even as officials redoubled their efforts to swiftly respond to Mother Nature's newest torrent.
The frigid horror of Winter Storm Pax isn't done, either. It is headed north with a vengeance. Meteorologists predict it could drop up to 18 inches of snow on the Northeast starting early Thursday - with up to 14 inches predicted in New York City and ten in Washington, DC.

This is two and a half inches of snow in Raleigh, North Carolina: A car burst into flames as a collision on an icy highway Wednesday. Authorities are warning citizens to get off the roads



The storm proved too much even for some police officers. Rescue crews has to pull a Hamilton County, Tennessee, sheriff's officer who slid off the road and became trapped inside his vehicle



Now comes the ice: This statue on the campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh shows the incredible amounts of ice laid down by the freezing rain that hit after the snow Wednesday



Stranded: Motorists were forced to get out and walk after traffic on highways in Charlotte, North Carolina, became gridlocked with drivers attempting to get home in a snow and ice storm on Wednesday



A North Carolina Highway Patrol trooper checks on the well being of a stranded motorist in Durham on Wednesday. This major road had clearly become a parking lot - with cars stopped and stranded at all angles



Gathering storm: This picture was taken by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's GOES-EAST Satellite at 1.15pm eastern time on Wednesday, showing how the front is sweeping across much of the eastern United States



Baring down: This NOAA satellite image, taken at 1.45am Thursday shows the storm gathering over the Northeast - as it moves away from the South

And, with wind gusts up to 40mph, drifting could become a major problem.

The morning commute across the Eastern Seaboard is likely to be as bad as it has been all winter, experts warn.

The Northeast is already bracing for impact. In Washington, the federal government will be closed on Thursday - along with all schools and many businesses.

Winter Storm Pax will then move Northeast through Wednesday night into Friday, impacting the heavily populated I-95 corridor.
The snow will start on Wednesday night in the Middle Atlantic, affecting Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia.
