Winter not yet done, more snow for parts of US


CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Winter-weary motorists faced another potentially treacherous commute Monday morning in parts of the Mid-Atlantic as frigid weather blew in just days before the start of spring.

Snow is expected by Monday afternoon from the Central Appalachians to the Jersey Shore. Parts of eastern West Virginia, central and west-central Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley could see up to 10 inches of snow. Smaller accumulations were expected in Kentucky, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey and Washington, D.C.

Forecasters warned that travel in the snowy areas could be dangerous and urged drivers not to let their guards down.

Federal offices in the Washington area were closed for the day Monday.

With spring officially starting Thursday, people weary of shoveling snow are hoping the latest storm will be winter's final encore.
