A mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow is delivering a sloppy winter smorgasbord from the Mid-Atlantic through southeastern Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey.

The slow-moving storm prompted officials Sunday in Virginia and parts of Maryland to urge residents to stay off the roads and forced scattered airport delays and cancelations.

The National Weather Service said a high pressure system from North Carolina north to New England is being fed by disturbances from the southwest and moist air off the Atlantic.

One meteorologist calls it a “recipe for winter precipitation.”

A band of snow has dropped 3 to 6 inches in southeast Pennsylvania, Delaware and southern New Jersey.
