Heavy snow, frigid temps take aim at eastern US

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Another batch of heavy snow and frigid temperatures is forecast from Virginia to New England as a winter storm bears down on the mid-Atlantic and northeastern U.S.

The National Weather Service says the winter storm could bring up to 10 inches of snow Tuesday to New York and Philadelphia and bitterly cold air with wind chills as low as 10 degrees below zero later in the day.

It warned of heavy winds and hazardous driving conditions throughout the day as the storm moves up the East Coast.

Temperatures are expected to remain in the 20s in many places and they could fall into the single digits Tuesday night.

The weather service warns the storm could impact the morning commute in Baltimore and Washington.
